RECOVERED**Barney was stolen 7/16/13 socal 626
**CAR HAS BEEN RECOVERED missing 3 wheels (thanks to wheel locks) steering wheel, seat, hood, and battery (according to person I spoke with over phone) on my way to the sheriffs now, haven't seen the car yet. Will keep you guys posted **
My beloved B14 has been stolen from me today while I was at work. I work at a mall (West Covina Mall, CA 91790) and Barney was stolen in a area where there is always pedestrians and traffic coming by. All doors were locked, windows/sunroof closed, No broken glass on floor. Walk out from a long day at work only to see an empty parking spot where he was parked. I had a 3" exhaust installed literally yesterday (No cat, no resonator, just straight through muffler) so he is very loud right now. Barney was stolen between the time frame of 4:30PM PST - 9:30PM PST. Roof is beginning to fade, LED rear foglight on bottom left corner. Very rare, vented, carbon fiber how with newly installed Aerocatch HoodPins. SR20DEEP sticker on passenger side, sr20forum sticker on driver side.
Will update with more info in a minute.
Pics as of yesterday:

Thanks for the support guys, Barney was recovered in Compton (approx. 20 mi from home) Car was found dumped on the cement with one steelie mounted on the drivers side. Lock on drivers door was tampered with, Ignition was yanked out, power wire for horn was ripped out, and all relays for anti theft pulled.
The parts that are missing are as follows: Four (4) 15x7 +35 Volk Racing te-37 mounted with 205/50/15 Falken ZE-912, 45% tread all around with a patch on 1 tire. Rare vented carbon fiber hood with newly installed aerocatch hood pins, Very rare old school nismo steering wheel mated with a NRG quick release (Theives only took steering wheel with quick release adapter, not entire short hub and quick release setup), Wilwood Dynalite 4POT calipers (faded purple), 11.75 coleman racing brake rotors with Honda top hats, wilwood stainless braided lines (front), no name raching bucket seat (bride zeta look alike, THANK GOD they left the bride seat rails), Willans Racing 4pt harness, one of a kind aluminum shift knob, Alpine head unit, JL audio 1100 watt 5 channel amp, Alpine type-s sub in a Alpine bandpass box, Spark plug wires (ULTRA WIRES in super rare blue), optima red top battery, rear view mirror w/ broadway.
There was not too much cosmetic damage, front bumper and VW lip is damaged, a few minor scratches on the body (besides where key lock was tempered. The interior was pretty messed up, panels removed/broken, rear deck was ripped out. Job was planned, they took mainly universal parts, the only thing they took that was not universal was the hood. Barney is safe at my mechanics shop now, I will be stopping by periodically to bring and install parts. The car has not been started since being recovered, mechanic will be looking over fluids to be sure nothing was tampered with, heres a few heart breaking pictures. I have a lot more to upload however I have to go to work.

Barney on his way to the safehouse
Barney safe and sound, protected by his older brothers.

Hope it's just a joyride, and it turns up quick! Would be a damn shame if it got stripped :/

I can't even imagine having your car stolen, I'd go ballistic! You have my condolences...
