Grand Theft Stereo..

This morning a rude shock awaited me !!
6.30 AM-started for work for a 8.00AM appointment ,but to see that my car stereo has been stolen.The thief ,for sure, must be a professional,gained access to inside of my car by manipulating the rubber lining of the window glass,opened the lock/door and took away the newly fixed a week old MP3 player set + remote controls for the set.
Why the hell did he leave the operation manual in the car ??He should have taken that along for a complete set !!

Called 911 ,waited for NYPD to arrive ,filed complaint..long procedures, cancelled appointments at work..a totally screwed up day !!

NYPD officer said "Thank god for your car is safe " YEAH !!

வாழ்க நியுயார்க்!!

My car does have an alarm/anti theft system,but if something is bound to happen, it happens.Usually in NY, the vehicle alarm goes off even when a music blaring car passes by .Its quite common to hear the alarm all day, so none actually bothers even if the alarm goes off for a serious thing !!
.............................
I bought this car hardly about 20 days ago ,and had planned a blog post about it..but least expected that this would happen !!

O My God man this is atrocious,
Sorry to hear this man
Is this thing insured, I know its a dumb question, just want to know if there anyway it will be replaced by the insurance.

Sorry to hear that.. next time u cud install LoJack for ur car.. if not, atleast u cud remove the face-plate of the MP3 player.. and slide it in the dash board everytime u switch off the car.. atleast someone wud not know that a brand new player exists..

Cipher said...

oh god !!! adapaavigala NY-layumaa.. indha atakaasam ..

thennavan said...

Prabhu, sorry about the loss but you know this is the US and especially you being in NYC, you are lucky the car was intact. BTW, you did not mention if the alarm went off (or you never had an alarm system in the first place). I have been in Philly and know the perils of city living. In other words, I feel your pain.

Narayanan Venkitu said...

Sorry to hear that Prabhu.!
Can't help it I guess..Happens all the time here.!!.! Especially in a city like NYC these would be more.

I think you should invest on a club atleast ( Wal Mart sells it) fo protect your car.
And then, the next time, please get one of Players with a detachable face. I installed one recently.!

BTW , Last year, my van was broken and they removed the TV and the VCR!!

SAd..SAD..!! Sorry again.

Raju said...

Kavya said...

ioiio said...

Oh Poor, didnt expect to read this..

narayanan said...

Oh thats really bad, car stereos are some thing s that are frequently stolen. enna tecnology valarndhu enna prayojanam, adhayum thaandi professional'a illa thirudaraanga :(

"Mr.Thief had left this behind for me "

This guy is either too smart, or a little dumb to do this. Too smart if he had'nt left any or someone else's fingerprints, a little dumb if he'd left his. NYPD should nail him if he falls under the latter.

Brett said...

Raganathan sir, thief just forgot it. I dont think police wud end up doing a finger print scan to actually catch a thief stealing a $100 dollar stereo. ;) So not a bad deal for theives if he/she cud get away scot free from the scene.

Ram.C said...

so sorry, about the state of your car... hope you get back something from the insurance company, based on your Police complaint...

Gladtomeetin said...

First time to your blog....But sad to know about your car...Can't imagine that even in NY such things happen.......Good your car is safe !!!

Nirek said...

Nirek said...

Hi Prabhu,

Sundar Narayanan said...

Sorry to hear about the theft. Don't you have a locking system for the stereo. Was it not insured?
