    If thieves can see something valuable or if they perceive that something might be valuable on the seat they will break the window to get it. I have heard firsthand of windows broken for a jacket, a handbag, a backpack, textbooks, cellphones, wrapped gifts and GPS devices. In another town I have a friend with dark tinted windows, thieves broke his window and stole his backpack with all his textbooks. We are unsure how they seen the backpack through the dark window.
