I live real close to West, I have learned over the years that I just leave the door to my house un-locked. I don't leave anything in it at all. Most times nothing happens, but I have had clowns that must have gotten mad cause there was nothing to steal, so they used it as a restroom....if you catch my drift.
Your damned if ya do and damned if ya don't.
I'll be putting mine back out, but I stay away from the crowds.
