Caught on camera: the thieves open Susan Frankss BMW in Finchley A GANG of thieves who use an elec- tronic bug to capture the remote locking codes of cars has been filmed in the act. Motorist Susan Franks said she was shocked when police told her the crooks who broke into her BMW saloon had used a sophisticated grab- bing device to exploit its keyless entry system. The bug is believed to have been hidden in bushes near her Finchley home so it could listen to signals sent from her key fob to the car and record the unique code. When the thieves returned, it is thought all they had to do to open the doors was replay the cloned signal. Mrs Franks, 50, who had installed a security camera at her house a week earlier after attempted thefts, said: When I replayed the CCTV I saw these young men in baseball caps just walk up and open the doors without any effort and start rifling through my things. My neigh- bours had the same thing hap- pen twice. The actress said a BMW garage told her there was noth- ing they could do to stop such cloning -- and quoted her 81 plus VAT to change the key codes. Whats the point? she said. They will just come back and clone it again. The manufacturers need to say what they will do to stop it. Police are investigating. by georgina littlejohn Shock: car key cloning victim Susan H index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html
