Same here. I would fully expect for that stuff to be stolen. I am very suprised it didn't happen earlier.
When my car is parked for shuttle NOTHING is visible in the car. Junk is in the trunk and valuables are in a dry box/bag in the stern of my kayak with me on the river.
I have lowjack in my car.
I never leave my gear at the takeout when I run shuttle unless someone sits with the gear. I always use a cable lock on my boat when it is parked at work.
I lock my car when I get out to road scout something that is 100 feet away from my parked car.
I never leave my garage door open, I never leave my gear in my front yard or in my driveway, my garage door is always locked.
Almost every single stolen item post I see is from someone who doesn't do these things.
You cannot enable thieves. It just encourages them. I hate thieves. The only thing I can do about it is to not give them candy like that.
