Good to hear the incident didn't end up with a car stolen or worse.
That is why I hate removable faceplates. Just something easy for opportunistic kids to steal. Much better to have locking radio codes. My experience with this kind of thing was when some kids stole the knobs off my radio and the engine hoist I borrowed from my garage. On a positive note, the guy gave me an old engine hoist and got a brand new one. :-/
