I don't leave anthing worth breaking into my truck for but a few weeks ago I had left it unlocked in my driveway and someone got in and emptied my ash try of the change I had in it and threw the ash tray on the back seat. I now remember to lock it and leave the ash tray open. It's a small theft but you feel violated.

I like to leave an old iPhone on my seat in plain sight with the doors unlocked. I also like to hide in the bushes with a bat.

I understand how you feel, but it is not wise to tempt a would be theft because you might be bringing a bat to a gun fight......
