Auto Burglaries or attempts

Hi Neighbors
I'll have some neighborhood updates shortly, but I wanted to share this with you right away.  There have been a few others recently as well.  This was sent yesterday by a neighbor at Corbett and Mars.

I wanted to let you know that I was in my front portico this morning around 5:15am having a smoke before leaving for work when I witnessed a couple of thugs crossing the street from Mars onto Corbett. The first individual walked up to a car parked across the street in front of I think 297 Corbett and peered into a car but turned around to see me standing in my doorway and quickly backed away from the car but still remained standing in the middle of the street. However, his partner in crime crossed the street a few seconds later very quickly and started peering into other cars (namely our neighbors white 5 series BMW) with the flashlight before his partner was able to alter him that I was standing there watching. He eventually clued in his partner who seemed un-phased that I was watching as they both started moving down Corbett rather hastily but still looking into cars as they went.
I did call SFPD who said they would send out a patrol unit right away but I didn't see any on my drive out of the neighborhood shortly thereafter. Both thugs are of unknown race, each about 5',9' to 6" tall, wearing heavy jackets over hooded sweat shirts that covered their heads. Each had a backpack and they both were toting along very long oversized skate boards.
Please feel free to share this information with our group as it appears the problem of vehicle break-ins and thefts still continues at all hours and days of the week.
