Car theft in the majority of the UK rose by as much as 38 per cent last year as keyless entry systems continue to be hacked.
In 2019 the county had 1,831 reported incidents compared to 1,332 in 2017 – a rise of 37.5 per cent. The widespread increase in car crime has been largely attributed to thieves taking advantage of keyless entry systems to gain access to vehicles using easy-to-purchase signal transmitting devices.
Other than that we have vehicles being stolen to order and traditional break in methods to use cars for joy riding. Broken windows and jammed locks are still the easiest way for thieves to break into and steal a car.
