Thieves Believed to be using Wireless Device to Unlock Doors

Print Friendly

Thieves continue to use bold techniques to break into cars, and this recent news story highlights how a suspect used what appears to be a wireless device to open the door of an SUV parked overnight in the owner’s driveway.  While the vehicle wasn’t stolen, their belongings were, including passports that were inadvertently left in the vehicle.

Recently, the National Insurance Crime Bureau highlighted a device that can be used to electronically break into vehicles, whose key fobs are nearby, but not necessarily in the thief’s possession.

The most recently reported full year data from the FBI Uniform Crime Report showed that over 700,000 vehicles were stolen in the United States, with significant increases in some states including California where the above break-ins happened.
