Comments: No this, no that

"HID lights" refers to high-density xenon headlights, which are brighter than traditional halogens. The xenon lights are also much more expensive and can be fenced for a couple hundred bucks apiece, so as a result, there's a brisk trade in stolen headlights.

Well, "high-density xenon" certainly makes more sense than "hidden", which was the only thing I could come up with that "hid." might be an abbreviation for. But I guess if people were looking for hidden lights, the fact that they couldn't see them wouldn't deter them -- they're hidden! So you might as well try to insist that you don't have any.

I can only hope someone was filming the bank entrance for some sort of art project or sociology study or just a stupid prank-based TV show.
