Keyless Vehicle Theft

Over the last few years there has been an increase in Keyless Vehicle theft. This is where offenders do not need the keys in order to steal the car.

Most vehicles that are taken without keys are stolen by using equipment that plugs into something called the OBD (On-Board Diagnostics) port. An offender will break a window and then gain easy access to the OBD port to effectively disable the alarm (which may also have gone off when they broke the window).
