The unfortunate thing about an alarm, any alarm for that matter, is it only keeps honest people honest. When an alarm is going off in a parking lot people tend to just ignore it since car alarms "false" frequently. My '67 had a nice alarm in it and it went off all the time for various reasons. For instance, water in the hood sensor until they moved it to a better location. The shock sensor was susceptible to radio signals. The shock sensor was my favorite. Every time someone would drive by, like a police officer or a cab or whatever, they would transmit and set off the shock sensor. The fix? Give the shock sensor a tin foil hat.
But, I digress. Sorry to read about the damage done to your car. It's an unfortunate thing but one would think that leaving an envelope on your dash shouldn't draw much attention if any. Unless someone knew what was in that envelope. Contact the bank and ask them if they have security footage either in the building or the parking lot. Chances are they have the person responsible on tape.
The window should be easily replaced with comprehensive insurance claim. Take a few hours and you're good to go. I wish you luck.
