I NEVER lock the doors of my soft-top equipped TJ for that reason.
Left the doors unlocked on the wife's jeep all the time. One night someone cut the soft top through the zipper to gain access to her sound bar. They gave up when they found out it was bolted to the roll cage. They didn't check to see if the doors were unlocked cause that is where the coppers are likely to check for prints.
Another reason to go through a window is the doors could be set to an alarm. No reason to open the door when you have easy access. Nothing will stop an idiot... err thief from trying to get in.
What I don't get is how they are interested in CBs and loose change and not the expensive items like doors. I've come to the conclusion that if a thief wants access into your rig unlocked he is still a complete idiot.
