A long time ago, I had a 1969 Mustang Convertible. I always left the doors unlocked. I figured it would be better if they opened the door and stole the $100 stereo rather than cut the top and then steal the $100 stereo.

As for the Op's dilemma, I had a roommate in college who swore he cashed his paycheck and stashed the cash somewhere in the house we were renting. We spent hours looking for it but never found it. About 2 weeks later, he was getting something out of one of the pockets in his wallet and he found his missing paycheck. Never cashed it, never hid it. And we never let him forget it.
