This high value Mercedes was stolen overnight from a driveway. Despite our hire car clients bedroom window being open and a dog sleeping on the bed nothing was heard. The hire car representative attended the Automatrics GPS reported location and with the Met Police to arrange site forensics in an off-road car park near Romford.

 

From the damage caused, the bandits were clesarly searching very hard to find, what we would describe as a standard Mercedes tracking system. Several of the wiring loom plugs were disconnected. Keyless theft usually involves two bandits working in a team, one member will scan through the house walls to read any vehicle keyless entry radio signal. The signal is usually then amplified and received by the second bandit who can then open the car.
