My intention here is not to blame the victims, but I cannot believe how many people leave wallets, purses, cash, checkbooks, etc. unattended in their cars.

I know what you mean. Sadly, I too am one of those people guilty of leaving my purse in my car when it's parked in my own driveway! I guess it's a false sense of security assuming that our own driveways are safe in these rural towns.

Observer, I agree with you 100%

It's been going on for years. Kids in East Haddam get hooked on heroin and start breaking into houses and cars. Eventually they screw up and get caught but then somebody else gets hooked on heroin and it starts all over again. I wouldn't assume any part of town is safe from this sort of thing. It just shifts around as the addicts usually (and stupidly if they don't want to get caught) hit their own neighborhoods.
