the cops are thinking that the same group is targeting both homes and cars. Cars if the home looks too secure (ie, has a dog behind the fence or inside the house?
We cleaned out all the vehicles so theres no contents visible looking through the windows

I live a few blocks from a crappy neighborhood. My town is considered to be wealthy. Unfortunately, we get a lot of thugs and crackheads crossing the border into our town to rob and steal.
My house has never been broken into, but I did accidentally leave our garage door open a few hours and sure enough, someone stole two mountain bikes.
We have an alarm system and never leave the house without turning it on. I've noticed that the thieves usually target lazy homeowners who don't have alarms or who leave ground floor windows open or unlocked.
On the flip side, our family has a vacation home on Martha's Vineyard. People literally leave their doors open and unlocked all the time. Multi-million dollar homes. Burglaries simply don't happen.
