Letter: Dear thief, was it worth it?

A letter "to the thief who broke into my car and stole my stereo and dash cam last week."

The Editor,

To the thief who broke into my car and stole my stereo and dash cam last week: What is the going rate for a second-hand $200 head unit? Were you able to get $50, maybe $75?

I hope you enjoy the CD that was in the deck. And the dash cam with no mounting hardware or power cord. What did that sell for?

Meanwhile, ICBC is so backed up processing claims for auto break-ins that it takes roughly two weeks to get an appointment to have an estimate done. Two weeks driving listening only to the windshield wipers is a bit dull but why would you care about someone else?

Once I do have an estimate, I’ll be out of pocket for the deductible, which effectively means I will be paying twice just because your parents did a lousy job of teaching you right from wrong.

I hope you eventually get caught in the act, hopefully by the police and not by the angry owner of the vehicle you are burglarizing. Not that I expect the justice system will offer much in the way of a punishment.

B. Hollingum, Coquitlam
