:x Yes...it happened to me! I was visiting my friend in LA for a week...came from NYC. Late May, West Hollywood/LA, K-Mart on 3rd. Guarded lot, 6 parking spots from the front door. My Kata backpack was on the floor of the back seat of my friend's Scion Xa, which has dark tinted windows. I had came from Sammy's Camera on Fairfax, brought my gear into the store and picked up a $50.00 sensor cleaning kit. Drove straight to Kmart to buy my friend some cleaning products for her bungalow...also on Fairfax. I was alone as she let me borrow her car for the day. So I get out of the Kmart and the front right passenger window is broken and my gear is gone. The guard on duty saw nothing. All I can surmise is that I was tailed from Sammys(about 2 miles between them) with my stylin' Kata backpack. The pack was virtually invisible, with it turned upside down on the floor of the car. So, I can tell you that my Canon 5D was stolen, a 70-200 f/4L, a 17-40 f/4L, a iPod Video with 60gb, and a nice pair of Sony MDR-7506s, not to mention about 10 gigs of CF cards. I just felt nothing really when I walked out and saw the broken glass. I said to myself before I went into the Kmart, "backpack is upside down on the floor of the backseat, tinted windows, guarded lot. Its perfectly safe". At least I had just bought a new broom and dustpan for my friend, and I put them to good use cleaning up all the glass inside and out of the car. The cops wouldn't come as it wasn't an emergency, and my friend didn't want to put it in as an insurance claim because the agency wouldn't tell her how much her insurance would go up as a result. The company who own the property and the security company running the lot have no liability as they post signs saying so. I had no apartment insurance which probably would have covered some of the loss. Oh yes I had to get her a new passenger window of course... So, DONT be stupid! Get your gear insured! DONT leave it in your car even if your lot is "safe"...and get a good car alarm! Someone might trail you from B&H, or Sammys, or Calumet. Might be me cracking your window next time trying to get some decent gear back lol.
