My 97 Honda's driver side door lock was been broken by a screwdriver last Thursday or Friday night Dec 4-5. My next door neighbor's car was also broken into and the steering column stripped about 2 weeks before. We are on the 2800 block of Humboldt in the alley.
Both cars are older model, not desirable cars so we were both surprised by the attempted theft. I think the same person broke my lock less dramatically about 6 weeks ago and came back to try again. All of our cars are now wearing Clubs. If anyone else is having these problems - let the police know and maybe they will increase patrols.
