Thieves raked in the bounty after grabbing items from unlocked cars during the overnight hours of April 7 to April 8, Hinsdale Police said.
Something frightened off a would-be thief who ditched a computer bag and laptop under a bush in the 600 block of Woodside sometime before 8 a.m. April 8.
According to the report, a resident contacted police after she found the items on her property.
The owner was contacted and said someone entered his unlocked vehicle while it was parked in his driveway.
A car was also reported burgled in the 200 block of Justina St. sometime before 8:15 p.m. April 8.
