I went to school in Phoenix and when my buddies and I got there, we made the mistake of buying Honda's for good gas mileage...
One of my roommate's cars was an old flip up headlight Accord, and it was gone one morning. About a week later, he saw it at the Circle K on the
corner. He got out and stood next to the payphone and waited for the people to come out. It was 2 hispanic girls, he said they couldn't have been
older than 18, and he walked up and said "I'm taking my car back". They looked up at him, he's huge, and looked like they saw a ghost and started
running. He got in and drove home calling 911 telling him that he did their job and not to pull him over as his car wasn't stolen anymore, that he
recovered it! lol
My other roomate bought an old CRX and after the last incident, about a month into being down there, put kill switches in all over the car so you had
to turn them on or there was no power to the ignition coil. So even if you tried to push start it, it wouldn't start.
This meant that about once a month, we'd go outside to go to school and find his car pushed to the end of the parking lot with the door open. As they
tried to hotwire it, then tired to push start it, and then left it.
However, it was better than never seeing it again!
There was also a neighbor in the complex who had a crotch rocket street bike who literally chained it to the parking structure... Still stolen!
AND, we had a guy who confronted KIDS who were breaking into his car, and they had a SAWED OFF SHOTGUN full of birdshot and practically shot his face
off from about 10 ft away as he was running up to them. They never got caught.
You are 100% right, down there is F%&*^#G crazy!
