If you said "the band needs to be more responsible" you win. That's the correct answer. Shitheads are looking for a van pulling a trailer. When young folk with tattoos hop out of that fan the shitheads being to salivate. They know who these kids are and what is in the van.
Years ago, I worked for a band. I wasn't a musician as I have no talent so I TMed these gents. I had a few rules. I always kept the band cash. I didn't care if it was $20 or $2000. That money was in my pocket at all times. We hid all electronics when we parked the car. When we parked for dinner or whatever we always made sure the van was in view. We tried to make the van look as low key as possible. We didn't want to attract the attention of riff raff. And how many times was our shit stolen??!?!?! NEVER. In fact, we lost stuff at venues once or twice and those promoters mailed our shit back.
If you keep getting robbed or burglarized may you should take some steps to avoid it.
