Luckily the car wasn't actually broken into (The wife had left a door unlocked,so they got in without damaging it).
They did make a token effort in taking the stereo and made a couple of small chips in the center consule in the process (they left the removable radio front on the seat,so it all still works).
The annoying thing was they left the interior light on,so the battery was flat by the time I discovered the theft.
The sandwich was a chicken salad one (which must of been bought at least 12 hours before it was taken,so it couldnt of been that nice
The CD's were a mixture of Small Faces,The Who (Quadrophenia double album),a couple of mixed classical albums,Schelmish,System of a down,White zombie,Nightwish,Radiohead,Kaiser chiefs and a Danny Elfman (Army of darkness movie soundtrack).
This is the second time my car stereo has been almost stolen.The last time was about 4 years ago,the wife parked it outside the hospital when visiting her mother there.When she left,as she approached the car she thought she had gone to the wrong car as someone was in it.When she realised it was someone trying to nick the radio she went ballistic at them and at first the thief wouldn't leave the car (my wife is only 5 foot tall,but makes up for it in italian/irish blood
When he finally made a break for it she grabbed him by the throat with both hands (pushing her thumbs into his adams apple....I taught her well
) he managed to push her away and ran off in great pain.
I was glad she was unhurt and told her not to do anything like that again..besides,she should of just him get one leg out of the car then just push against the door (he wouldn't of been able to hurt her and wouldnt of got far with a broken leg
