Did they let you take the car without taking the stuff out of the trunk? Would think they would want to hold onto that for other cases. Sure looks like a career criminal, temp tags and a trunk full of stuff. Most likely headed for a pawn shop or Craigs list.

Glad to hear it came back in one piece. Wonder if you can "fix" the way they start the car without your keys?

So...kind of embarrassing...but I think the Westminister detective and I figured out what happened.....this scumbag was walking my neighborhood mainly looking to break into cars and steal stuff...has a history of this. When he got to my house, his footprints led to my 80 and he looked in it, but nothing of "value" was there (my ham and cb I guess were not enough) then he went to the Jetta....which apparently was unlocked. There was no physical evidence of any kind that he broke into the car, so unless he had some kind of electronic means, then the car was unlocked. I very rarely leave it unlocked...Amber used to give me a hard time for locking it in the driveway, but it was habit, and if the lights were on Auto, the lights stayed on until you locked the doors. No idea how or why they were unlocked, but that is the most logical explanation. Not the smartest thing I have ever done, but not unusual, and very common in our neighborhood. Now the really dumb thing I did, is I left the valet key in the car...I think in the storage area between the seats. Dumb dumb dumb...I put it there when I picked the car up new last year and honestly I don't remember ever looking in the storage area ever again...it is tiny and I never use it anyway. The scumbag had my valet key on him when arrested (along with some other keys) so it looks like that is what he was using. I guess I am lucky he did not break into and damage the car to steal my kids' dual DVD player and I am very lucky to get it back undamaged. Let my stupidity be a lesson to you all! (And I am getting kinda tired of teaching you all stuff through my stupidity....it is someone else's turn!!!!)

Thanks all, and hopefully my embarrassing tale will help someone else out and prevent a car theft.

When I lived in Golden in college I left my keys in the ignition in my FJ40 overnight once. Summertime, top and doors off. Lucky it was still there in the morning

Thanks for all the lesson's Trust me I can and have thought a lot of people lessons in life. Biggest problem is that I don't learn from my own lessons You got the car back, nothing happened to it and they caught the guy, pretty good ending to a bad beginning.

Lock your car, no keys in the nooks and cranny's and if they steal they will have to do it the old fashioned way.......They have to earn it (read in the voice from the guy of Law and order )
