I didn't know about this until just now. It's been going on as of late across the east bay, which is where we were over the weekend. Anywhere between Oakland to the north east bay. It's about to go viral very soon.
You don't need to break into the ignition, you don't need to break into the lock itself anymore. It's now activated by a mechanism.
So, do yourself a favor, if you have a garage, LEAVE it in there until you're ready to drive to another place. This is becoming a big problem.
Police Officers currently don't know about this, your mechanic doesn't know about this. Virtually anyone remotely does car work doesn't know this right now.
