Our car was broken into last night. It was parked in our spot in the parking lot behind the buildings on the condo property. It's the first time it's happened to us.
One of our neighbours, Don, knocked on our door about 8:30pm to let us know.
I went out to check it out and sure enough someone had smashed the front passenger window.
The dash storage was open as was the console between the two seats.
We don't keep anything of value in the car as there have been break-ins in the past. All that was stolen was our GPS which was in the console storage. The cable plug-in for it was left, though. Huh?!
I called the police right away to report it. Since it was such a small crime, they didn't come out to check or take fingerprints. But at least it's on record in case it happens again in the 'hood.
Gord found a company who replaced the window this afternoon. They came to the car in our parking lot and replaced it there. Plus they vacuumed all the broken glass from that side of the car.
Our deductible is $300. To replace the window was $300. It didn't make sense to put it through our insurance so we had to suck it up along with the cost to replace the GPS.
