A man in Fargo, N.D., left his car unlocked. When Mark Neary returned to the car, he found it ransacked. Somebody had taken his driver's license and credit cards among other things. Whoever robbed him also left behind a note: "Lock your car."

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A man in Fargo, North Dakota left his car unlocked. And when Mark Neary returned to the car he found it ransacked. Somebody took his driver's license and credit cards and other things. But at least the thief did not take the car itself, since Mr. Neary left the keys in the ignition. Whoever robbed him also left behind a note. The thief wrote that Neary had amazing taste in music, and he offered some advice - lock your car.

It's MORNING EDITION.
