What street or streets in Swissvale did break ins occur.

Mine was on Hampton. The thief that was caught breaking into my car, in Swissvale had tools to pick the locks. So the car doors may not have all been unlocked.

I'd like to leave my car unlocked and set up a camera in my house, to film the car and any possible break in. Is this legal?

That's a good question, E.K. Any law enforcement officials or attorneys out there know the answer?

You should be good to go. For whatever reason, audio recording is usually more regulated than video.
