Sophisticated car theft using technology
I don't see Chrysler / Jeep or Cooper Mini listed in the table in the story, so I can't say for sure it is related, but . . . the next door neighbors had a Jeep Grand Cherokee stolen from their driveway last year. It appears the thieves both unlocked (they heard the "chirp" from the unlock, which got them out of bed to look) and then started the keyless ignition and they saw them take it from the driveway and go for a joy ride without having access to the original "keys" or fob at all. They also saw their Cooper Mini doors had been remotely unlocked at the same time.
We were all wondering if the thieves had some sort of transmitter sending unlock codes at a rapid pace, and got lucky. Other neighbors in the same area had things taken out of their vehicles around the same time, finding the doors unlocked in the morning when they were all pretty certain they'd been locked the night before. Most had alarm systems, and the alarms hadn't gone off but the doors had obviously been opend and the contents of the car tossed about looking for valuables.
