"The car was destroyed inside. There was graffiti everywhere. The car smells like marijuana," owner Jose Flores told WBZ-TV.

There was also a note left behind for the owner.

The letter read, "I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Needed to borrow for emergency situation... Life's rough, you understand."

It also went onto ask why the keys were left inside the Audi, but Flores said he doesn't remember them being in the car.

"You don't damage people's property and apologize. I think they were trying to insult us," Flores said.

To make matters worse, his wife was fired from her job when the thieves took some confidential health documents that were left in the SUV.

"If they had fun, good for them, but I will press charges to them because this is not something fun. They need to learn their lesson not to take people's property and damage them," Flores said.

There have been no arrests at this point in the investigation.
