Car Thieves Steal Lexus In Seconds
That's not good...
Your car being stolen is a big problem, especially when it only took a few seconds to steal. Some thieves in Toronto managed just that.
Recently, a string of robberies involving new cars equipped with a keyless FOB feature in east Toronto. One of these thefts were caught on camera and showed someone holding a sensor attached to a computer in his backpack called a frequency amplifier. This device increases the range of the FOB and then boosts the frequency to a second person's phone. This tricks the car into thinking the phone is the FOB and allows the thieves to drive off.
Toronto Police said that to prevent these types of thefts, people should park their cars in a garage and put their FOB in a signal blocking case or keep them away from their front door if they can.
