Here's why police keep telling you not to leave anything interesting in your car

A Fields Corner resident forwards this video from her surveillance camera this morning: It shows a guy peering inside cars on Ditson Street (0:15), trying the door of a car that has something that piqued his interest, all casual like (0:30) and then, when it turns out the car is locked, he goes and finds a rock (1:10), which he uses to smash in the car's window (1:59) - a task that takes him several tries. He reaches in, grabs and pockets something, saunters away - and then returns (3:50) to open the car and spend some quality time inside the car rummaging around. After all that effort, all he got was a flip phone.
