Q: vandalism

asked by on

The key to my car was stolen from my home. Now the person returns and uses it to vandalized my car inside and out. Help.

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

I would recommend having a police report done and contact your insurance company. The only way to keep them out of the car is to replace all the locks and ignition key switch.
