UK: Hi-tech car theft warning to drivers at M4 service stations

UK: Drivers have been warned that hi-tech thieves are targeting vehicles parked at motorway service stations.

Thames Valley police said there have been 14 thefts from a range of vehicles at services on the M4 in Berkshire.

In many of the cases there was no obvious sign of a break in and no damage was caused to the vehicles.

They believe the crooks could be using technology to stop people locking their vehicles before they steal from them.
