Keyless theft can be done in a relatively simply manner: criminals can purchase amplifiers and transmitters, i.e. over the internet, and use them near homes to detect, amplify and later mimic a key’s signal to gain access to a vehicle.
The police advise taking certain precautions, for example leaving vehicles in a closed garage and not leaving the keys near home entrances.
