In 2001, I was commuting from suburban Chicago to downtown, using the CTA Blue Line, and would park my car in a lot at the station. I came back to my car one evening, to find the left rear passenger window smashed in. The only thing that was missing from the car was about $2 in change, which had been sitting in a cupholder.

I called the local police, and the responding officer told me that such break-ins were common in that lot. He said that the perpetrator(s) were nearly always looking for CDs, which they would then try to sell while riding on the train. My CD case was still in the car; I have to guess that the person didn't think that CDs by Electric Light Orchestra, Yes, and Queen would sell well.
