The Sitting Room

First "Relay Crime" caught on CCTV

A place to chill out and talk about anything or just say hello, keep it clean and light hearted

There's a new way to steal cars and it's been caught in action on CCTV in the West Midlands.

The owner of a Mercedes woke to find their car stolen without using the key. The process uses a relay box system, which picks up the key signal and relays it to the car, opening it and allowing the engine to start and drive it away. All without the need to enter the owners home.

The video of the theft can be seen here on the BBC website.

I know many of you will have other vehicles which may well use keyless access, and while this is not yet a major crime in the UK, it will become more and more of a problem as technology marches on.

*UPDATE*

A similar thing happened earlier in Solihul - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england ... less-theft
