    Sad Be careful in this parking lot...

    I had a fun day at SeaWorld in San Diego on Sunday, but it was virtually ruined upon discovery when we were leaving that my car was broken into, and all my luggage and a slew of valuables were stolen from my car.

    I was parked in "Preferred Parking" right near the front of the lot, and in plain view of the Preferred Parking booth, so it was a great shock. SeaWorld security sent someone to to "take a report" but that mostly entailed writing my information down on a piece of scrap paper, so take that for what it's worth. I have a call in to the San Diego Police Dept. to take an official report, but they told me to just wait for a phone call in a few days. So much for police work!

    Anyway, just wanted to warn everyone to be careful!

    Ugh. And Sea world seems like such a clean, safe park. I'm sorry Jonathan.

    Sorry to hear that. What are you expecting to be done when the police report is done?

    That sucks. We've parked in that preferred area PLENTY of times, and yeah, your right, it's probably one of the most traveled areas of the parking lot. It would take some nerve to break into a car there.

    Re: Be careful in this parking lot...

    I'm sorry Jonathan and I thank you for the warning. I would think that they would have security camera's in their parking lot for their protection, for your sake I hope they do and that the police review it and can find the suspects.

    P.S. I was in Phoenix so there is no way it was me!

    At least you were able to contact the police. Hopefully they'll be able to take down a report and help you.

    It could have been worse as far as that's concerned. I have a coworker who had his car broken into in a parking lot also in San Diego. Except that this was the parking lot of an Indian casino (I forget which one). What makes it worse is that the police refused to get involved, since the casino grounds are considered a "sovereign nation". So the only help he got was from the casino security who, from what it sounds like, made the Sea World security team look like the LAPD. (Oh wait -- which is worse?)

    They never did find out who did it. He was just, no pun intended, out of luck.

    That's terrible. I always park in preferred parking. Was your luggage in plain view? Not that it would excuse the crime. i was just wondering.

    Sorry to hear the bad news. Everyone's fear I'm sure. Were any of your car windows open? Can you give us any more details to learn from which might aid in saving ourselves?
    Just countin' the days til the next visit!
