    1. The story states that “several cars in the neighborhood were damaged or broken into.” So it may not be a case of leaving cars unlocked this time.

      1. All I can say is reading is fundamental.note where in the article it says the victim’s car was unlocked.

        “The victim’s vehicle was unlocked and he said the suspects threw between 20 to 30 bottle rockets in the back seat, setting the car on fire. The suspects fled in an unknown direction.”
