Title pretty much says it...I was at a concert last night and my car and my dad's car (driven by my brother) were broken in to. The fucker busted out the back driver side window of my dad's car and took my brother's wallet. Took out my passenger rear vent window and got my CD player ($200), CD ($15) and my practice guitar amp ($40...and I'm sure they can play guitar). In addition, the entire center console of my car is pretty much fucked. They didn't unscrew anything...just pulled everything until it all busted and came out.

Anyways, there was no liability notice posted anywhere around the lot and I filed a report for both cars at the local precinct a few minutes after we got to the cars.

Haven't contacted the insurance company yet (it happened Friday night, so they haven't been open since), but my main question is, can I (or should I) bother pursuing any legal action against the lot? The officer that took the report says it's a pretty common occurence for thefts from that lot, so I'd imagine people have tried it before.

Anyways, thoughts or suggestions on the situation would be appreciated. And I'll post pics in a few minutes.

P.S.: My car is a 1993 Toyota Corolla and my dad's is a 2003 Buick Regal.

I know its been 4 days but here is some good advice.

My car got broken into back in in september, Thats good you got a police report, Call the credit card companies as well as your brothers bank. You need to go down to the police department and tell them that since they got your brothers wallet, he could also be a victim of identity theft, while your there get a copy of the police report as well as a property report. Get a copy of both and call your insurance company asap and fax them everything, this will speed up the process alot.
