    Oh John. This is not my story, but my friend’s. However, I must tell you.
    Lee’s meticulously kept pickup truck was stolen from in front of her house. She called the police. They refused to even take a report. About a week later, she saw the pickup parked in the driveway of a house just a few blocks away! She looked inside to verify that it was hers. It was, but now her pristine truck had candy wrappers and coffee cups and trash and even a grocery list! She was more appalled at how someone had treated her beloved truck than the fact that someone had stolen it to run errands! She called the police while she was standing in front of the house of the their. The police asked her if she had the keys. She said that yes, she did. The police then told her to just drive it back home. Not kidding. She said that she wanted to press charges. They ‘convinced’ her (not) that since the thief lived in her neighborhood that it was best to just take the truck back and be thankful that it was still in one piece. So she drove the truck home, and spent a small fortune detailing it. True story. Sad.

    John Mulaney tells the best stories, always funny, I wish the two of you were back on SNL, it's not been the same since either of you left, the skits are silly and ridiculous and not funny. I laughed more at this interview than I have laughed in the past few months watching SNL...just sayin ~~

    Pretty sure it's still considered burglary regardless of unlocked doors. In fact, a simple Google search: *"the unlawful entry into almost any structure (not just a home or business) with the intent to commit any crime inside (not just theft/larceny). No physical breaking and entering is required; the offender may simply trespass through an open door."*
    Even if they didn't commit a crime, as long as they had an intention to, it's still burglary.

    I literally had this SAME problem. I (admittedly) used to leave my old 2000 Cavalier open, and when I got inside to go to work one morning, I froze, because everything in my glovebox was ransacked and all over the car. (I also watch BBC's Sherlock, and I am obsessed with it to the core. I do take his advice, and I do observe beyond the normal scope, do the deductive reasoning, all that).
    So it was a good thing it snowed that night, because the perpetrator left his FOOTPRINTS all over the side of the car. So I calmly got out, took a photo of a nice, clean, footprint with my phone, and scoured the whole property (we live on a community lot) for the same type, shape, size, and shoe model as the perpetrator's. (I had reverse Google images to thank for finding out the shoe model).
    The footprints led me right up to his front door. I had his address. I go back home, type up a lengthy letter with a piece of my mind in it, with the occasional gloating that I'm not one to be trifled with, stuck it in an envelope, and drove right up to his front door, slapping the letter on his door.
    The residents of Weatherstone Village slept a little sounder that day. :)
    Seriously, who commits a crime IN THE SNOW where your footprints can be seen?
