[Tweeters] Car break-in at Discovery Park, Seattle this morning

I'm wondering if it would be worthwhile to plant a GPS tracking device in a camera/scope bag at one of the places where birders' cars get broken into the most and find out where it goes.... perhaps working with the sheriff/police to do so. There was an NPR story several months ago where they used this technique to catch a thief stealing hay bales. Worked like a charm. Could also be submitted as a press release to all media outlets.

Hi Doug & Tweeters,
 
Sorry to hear about this. I too have had vehicles broken into while birding. They didn't break the window but somehow jimmied the lock. This happened at Golden Gardens. They took a camera bag with one small lens and a pair of bins. Now I don't leave anything in my car while out and about.
 
Just a note there have been break-ins at Magnuson Park also. They now have a private firm watching the park and ride area. You can't be too careful.

This morning I was parked at the Discovery South Parking lot and my window and another car’s window got broken out. Must have occurred about 8am. Someone saw a late 90’s Suburban leaving the parking lot quickly. It was either white or silver colored.
 
They took a backpack from my car and 2 bags from another car. Nothing valuable from mine was taken. Just quite a hassle to deal with.
