Ouch. Sorry to hear that. I'm sure it happens. I just can't imagine thieves going through parking lots, breaking into cars with visible garage door remotes so that it's easier to break into a house. First of all, isn't it just as easy if not easier to jimmy a house door open than a car door? Second, a smart thief scopes out a house for a while before breaking to make sure no one's home and no neighbors are looking. Choosing a house by breaking into a random car you found in a distant public parking lot is just so... random... and stupid.
Not saying it never happens just can't imagine it's an emerging epidemic. Maybe I'm wrong.
