The headline makes it sound like garages of people's homes... But, the article says they used service entrances, so... Are these businesses?

Hang out a Mexican flag in front of your house/ business and they'll leave you alone.

The small door for a garage at a home is called a service door.

Service entrance doors are pedestrian doors to a garage as opposed to the overhead garage door.

Most garages have a garage door and a regular door like the one on the house. This regular door is usually referred to as the service entrance or man door.

These thiefs hit my garage! How dare they think they can come in and take something they didn't work for! They are no good and worthless people to me. I do hope that something happens to them someday. Payback SUCKS! If these lazy people would go out and get a JOB and WORK for things rather then steal. The sad thing is.. these people probably have offspring and the whole damn cycle repeats itselfs!

In the winter, I keep all my beer and pop in the garage. It's too warm in the basement.
The pop froze once, but the beer was really cold.
