Xmas eve stereo bandit

So unfortunately on the night before xmas eve, i fell victim to the stereo bandit. As you can see in the picture, it's pretty nasty looking. The prick is so lucky I didn't catch him or id be happily sitting in a cell and he'd be 6' under...anyways what's troubling me is not the theft, but now my car wont unlock. I get no response when i put the key in and for some reason the loud alarm that didnt fu*kn go off when i got snaked decides to go off each time i attempt to unlock the door. And what i also noticed was that the headlights and tail lights aren't flashing like they're supposed to when the alarm is triggered..Its annoying because each time i try and unlock my car the alarm decides to go off and stop after a minute or two. The prick stole my stereo and smashed my driver side window at 1:00 am in my apartment complex garage lot. We have surveilance and a tape but the a-hole is all covered up and appears to have been anyone..(crappy footage) lol talk about rotten luck! The car not wanting to unlock just adds to my frustration >_<
