I was slingin plastic at Swope today (around noon) and someone broke out my window in my truck. After letting themselves in, they then helped themselves to my IPOD (which was hidden in the center console) and my backpack (it contained a full color Buzz and some clothing items). None of the items stolen were visible from outside the truck. I had parked by #4 basket on Elmwood. I filed a report with the police and they mentioned that the thieves have been hitting cars at the zoo and surrounding area. They have been targetting gps units in cars, although my gps was not in the truck, the mount was on the windshield, which is probably why they picked my truck out of the 3 cars parked there. Anyway just wanted to put the word out so maybe future break-ins can be prevented. It might be best to leave your electronic devices at home.
