this is actually quite common in nj, in the last 3 weeks we have had about 4/5 sti/wrx stolen. The roof rack thing is very very common. If i left my oem cross bars, fairing, and tie rod, it would be gone by morning. the only time they won't touch the car is if it only had the oem cross bars but even then its a risk. I use the roof rack occasionally so I put on and take off the same day, never let it sit when its dark out. I tend to stick with my hitch mount rack which they would also steal in a second eventhough it is locked. Based on the bikes that I have, I have had ppl try to steal them before or try to strike up conversation with you to get info to them come to your place and jack your ride. Paranoia is your best friend here. You are lucky they did not do more usually they pry the thing off so forcefully that it takes out part of the roof as they did with my friends vw. All for a stupid jdm look eventhough they don't own any bikes, skis, snowboards or etc. ********
