Somone Tried To Break Into My Truck!

They put a screwdriver or something in the lock on the drivers side and hit it with something. I am not mad I just think the people that did it were probably dumbasses cause there is alot better ways of breaking into a vehicle. I dont know when it happend as I dont use the lock I have keyless entry.

Is there something I can jam in there so no one else tries it?

Its true though. I cant use my key in the drivers door I bet if I try alittle I can but I have NEVER used it. I am not worried about it cause I have the other door is the battery dies. But I have an optima so I dont think thats going to happen soon!

Yep, the retards think that shoving a screwdriver in a lock then hitting it will just make the door magically pop open.

Just like the Honda Civic thieves.....they think that by smashing a pointed driver behind the lock cylinder and through the sheet metal that they'll be the lock rod there......

My brother went out to his old Corsica from class a few years back and found a small hole beside his lock cylinders on BOTH sides of the car. Needless to say, his car was still locked when he got there and no one got in.

One "home boy" sees a movie a then thinks they can do anything.

Andy, I feel for ya.......too bad they bussed all "them" to Houston.

They tried that here on my roommate's truck too...

The crime rate in houston jumped hardcore when they bussed them in... I wish they'd just go back to nawlin's and live in their "chocolate city..."

LMAO.......nice!!!!

I was watching a show on Thursday on the Discovery Channel about the clean-up still going on and everything from house evaluations, to levy repairs. Pretty good show, but too bad it looks like that majority of the lower wards are gone to sh*t. Between the totaled homes and oil contaminated land, looks like "Nawlins" just got a lot smaller in population.

I had a guy try to break into my truck once, I seen him with a coat hanger or something trying to pop my unlock button because it was hot and I left the window cracked, but when I walked out and see him, before I could say anything he ran off, when I got to the truck, my trusty 85 pound dog was sitting there foaming at the mouth. Thats my security system........

The lock rods in Rangers are hard enough to get at with your fingers... how did he expect to get it with a coat hanger!?

I can only assume that he was trying to push the unlock button, if he was trying to pull the lock rod, that would be a real water head now wouldn't it!?!?

Thats what happened to me last year at work, some F*ckin n*gger did that and stole my cell. I know for sure thats who it was because we have security cameras and we could see him, but not enough to make his face out clearly for ID. We tried to zoom in on his plate but it didn't have one. After calling the cops they said there have been allot of this going on lately. They come up the freeway out of Detroit, hit 10 cars and then head back home........

Isn't there a technique using the holes located under the door handle on rangers? I thought I read this before somewhere... Suppose to be really easy to do with a screw driver once you get the hang of it.
