Car break-in maybe, maybe not!

Living in Reinach BL
My car is an old 1997 model that can have the old quirk but an incident on Monday this week left me feeling strange.
Walking through our parking lot (we get secure parking under Migros which is locked outside of Migros opening hours) I noticed my driver seat was completely reclined, like when you want to take a nap, and on trying the driver door, it was unlocked! Zero was stolen, incl SatNav and interior looked completely as I'd left it, no weird smell or anything like that. I was possibly chalking it up to the electronics playing up, but then saw a facemask hanging off my wing mirror (outside). Which again, may have been some oddbod that broke into the car for a nap, or someone leaving the mask as a kind "notice" that something was up with my car (hoping it was an unused one!). Left me absolutely baffled as to what actually occured! Reinach generally seems crime free but its left a suspicious feeling.

Homeless person needing a warmer place to sleep?

Sounds like a homeless hooker hotel room. Wipe down all surfaces with bleach solution would be my recommendation.

Don't think so, hourly rates are like 3x or more of engineering consulting
