There was also a rash of car break-ins in the vicinity of Marengo and Mission during this period (including my own) that were reported but for some reason or another are not on this list.

Thanks, Elias. We'll look into this.

My vehicle was ransacked with the door left ajar. (nothing taken as far as I have been able to determine) and several homes away on Marengo, a neighbor had an ipod stolen from their vehicle. That's all I know about. I want to say this was discovered the morning of Monday the 9th, but I'd have to speak with my wife to be positive.

@Elias: I looked into this and found out that the police department only lists reports that were actually assigned a written case number. Sometimes, SPPD issues a computer log number to a crime, which is documented in the computer, but no written report is made.
