It appears car thieves are consistently coming up with new ideas to steal your cars easily. This is why law enforcement agencies and car owners should always be on their toes and watch out for these crazy tricks deployed by these robbers. One of their latest tricks is using a device that looks like a Nintendo Game Boy to steal cars in seconds. The UK police recently arrested three car thieves who used this act to steal five Mitsubishi Outlanders.
The device is disguised as a Nintendo Game Boy and can easily unlock any vehicle
According to reports, three suspects; 29-year-old Dylan Armer, 31-year-old Thomas Poulson and 33-year-old Christopher Bowes, were arrested after the authorities spotted them on camera on the 20th of July stealing a Mitsubishi Outlander from a driveway in Scholes. From the video shared online, the three men were seen unlocking the vehicle by using a device before stealing it from the driveway. Luckily for the local authorities, they were able to use this video to get their identities and track them down.
During the search party, the local police found a fake Nintendo Game Boy, which turns out to be the device they used in unlocking these cars. The device is said to be worth around £20,000. With this device, they can easily unlock cars and start them. The game-like device that was discovered with a fake Supreme case has a special code to crack into any Mitsubishi Outlanders.
