dont tell anyone i told you, or i could get kicked out of the thiefs guild haha..
actually you can learn how to pick lock it if you like, but takes some time - and you always got that big *** drill in the garage muhaha..
just remember the important steps
Make sure you do it in a parking lot or a public area, dont want anyone to get the wrong idea.
Make sure you wear full black when doing picking and a mask (it helps the picking go faster for some reason.. just like vinyls on a bike)
Make sure daytime, people can and will come up to you and give you advice if you are doing it wrong
and if a cop starts to come your way, just run...
with these steps you will be a master of lockpicking in no time or in jail doing 5 to 10
(but seriously, good luck with the gas tank.. )
