Most likely somebody saw it and decided to "come back for it"
so as others have already pointed out they don't live far away.
I live in modest house in the older part of St. Pete, nice neighborhood, red brick streets etc.
There's no crime here unless it "comes" from somewhere else.
I see "them" (the boys from the "hood") occasionally walking or riding their bicycles
down the middle of the street looking into the windows of all the parked vehicles,
or in the middle of the night driving real slow.
It's obvious what's going on, but if I were to confront them or even just say something,
I'm considered a racist and all of the "laws" are against me.
It's been several years since all of my tools were stolen out of my truck box,
they just pulled up next to it at 4 am pried it open and loaded them up,
in the 30 seconds it took me to get outside they were rounding the corner,
hindsight tells me it's just as well as I probably would have shot them,
and it's a hellova lot easier to buy $500 worth of tools
than deal with the repercussions of something like that,
but you know, I'm still "looking" for that car.
