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

Last year I had a similar experience while birding at the Montlake Fill. My mistake was leaving a small throw on the back seat and placing my tote in the trunk after I parked. I suspect they were watching at the time and planned to pop the trunk release once they gained access.

They broke the rear window, which activated the alarm, but were unable to get in the trunk. I make a practice of keeping the trunk locked so it can't be opened without a key. This happened mid-day in a well trafficked area. I was lucky, this time!
