More thefts from motor vehicles
 
 
I'm hearing more and more stories of people having their car "entered" overnight and thefts of items from within. No signs of entry, no damage and only small, non-traceable items stolen. They must have some sort of scanning device that can open the central locking and bypass the alarm but how do they get the frequency? My car was entered earlier this year and a poor guy at work only had his brand new Hyundai Tucson 4 days and that was entered overnight. All stories I hear are from around the Marton area.

I am sure that a few years back people were sat in places like supermarket car parks nearby the car with some sort of reader machine that was able to pick up the key code signal.

Apparently if your key fob does not work first time there is the possibiliy it was grabbed, especially if 2nd time works fine. Dunno where they get the grabbers from mind. Scumbags they are though. They followed people home.

Dont the fobs just transmit the signal though? surely your door would unlock as well as them getting it.

I know there was a video midlands or somewhere where this happened, but sure there was a thing in the gazette lately where it happened to loads of people round here, and police closed their enquiries as turned out people had just left their cars unlocked?

Suppose its handy insurance fallback to claim a device was used to open your fully locked car, but thats just an opinion [^]

This was reported as allegedly happening in Ingleby Barwick a few months ago - police completely dismissed the electronic device theory and said motorists had simply neglected to lock their car and opportunist scum bags were walking around overnight and trying car doors and nicking stuff from those left open.

The device that was shown in midlands somewhere wasn't a master key type device either, it was for keyless entry cars and used a transmitter to pick up the signal from the key which was behind the door, and then transmit it to the car, so needed the key to be near the door for it to work.

The leaviing the car unlocked is the more likely. How often have you pressed the fob button and not looked or listened due to being distracted by the kids, grappling with shopping etc.

There have been numerous cctv videos locally showing scrotes wandering the streets in the early hours trying car doors just on the off chance.

Probably what Coluka was saying but a few months ago only the tele they reported this but wouldn't go one hundred percent into great detail of how to do it for obvious reasons.
They said you could buy something on line for a few pounds which worked alongside a cheap mobile phone which helped you break into to cars etc cars which are locked in the fob.
It showed you groups of men going in pursuit of top of the range cars in the middle of the night caught on the householders CCTV .

Lionhunter, was a few threads asking about you a while back, not sure if you had seen them (or replied and I missed it) - just asking around your health I believe. Just FYI!

The devices grab the signal from your key - leaving them is a metal tin, or microwave oven apparently prevents it happening [^]

If you can be XXXXXXd of course.

This happened to me last year when a scumbag that I know entered my car. I have to be honest and say I do leave my car unlocked sometimes, because I am lax.

The good news: the scumbag was later jailed for other misdemeanors.
