I read John in La's post yesterday about how thieves punch a hole under the door lock to gain entry into a vehicle, and this morning my wife and I were driving through Carbondale IL, and a Buick LeSabre in the lane next to us had a hole punched exactly like the pic that John posted. Seeing is believing, and I saw it here first.

I don't think anyone disputes that you can break into many cars by punching a hole in the door. The part that is fictional is the idea that someone would break into a car just to determine where its owner lives, while not taking anything from the car.

Yeah - I don't think the common car thief is disciplined enough to pass up easy pickins'. But just in case - a couple of years ago I programmed "home" in my GPS to be the city hall/police station in the little town near where I live. Surely I can find my way home from there, ha. It shows my stupidity though. I never thought about all the insurance/registration papers in the glove box. All with my name and address listed on them. My car's 11 years old, so it's not much of a target.

Yeah. My GPS thinks an Interstate overpass a coupla miles from my house is "home".

But, like you said, if anyone broke into my car, my registration, insurance cards, etc. are in the glove box anyway.

Why not redact the information the Police don't need to see? All they need is your name on there and the dates.
