On 4/18/2017 my car was broken into outside a convenience store in West Oakland. As an Oakland resident of four years I should have known better than to leave my belongings in the car. I thought just running in for two minutes wouldn't be an issue but I was wrong. My bag with laptop, prescription sunglasses, studio headphones and chargers for phone and laptop was gone a whole *TWENTY* seconds after I exited the vehicle!
The whole thing was caught on the store's security cameras and here is an edit of that footage that tells the story.
Learn from my mistakes:
NEVER LEAVE YOUR VALUABLES UNATTENDED! Not even for twenty seconds! Get renter's insurance, it covers burglaries from your vehicle. Back up your computer and phone on a regular basis.
