Watch Full Video Of Range Rover Car stolen in just 23 seconds - CCTV Footage - 2015.Gone in 23 seconds: CCTV catches thief stealing £80,000 Range Rover car in a matter of moments using hacked electronic key Range Rover Autobiography stolen in August in Hampstead, North London Owner David Conway recorded the incident on his home CCTV camera Theft part of ongoing steal-to-order campaign run by organised criminals This is the moment a brazen thief casually approached an £80,000 car and stole it – in just 23 seconds. The Range Rover Autobiography was stolen on August 28 in Hampstead, North London. Owner David Conway recorded the incident on his home CCTV
camera - showing the thief nonchalantly strolling up to the vehicle, before making his getaway. The theft is just one of many in the area recently – part of an ongoing steal-to-order campaign organised by sophisticated criminals. Professional thieves buy £30 devices that allow them to copy the car's unique electronic key code when the owner uses it before going back to steal the vehicle. Alternatively, they can buy devices that unscramble the car's code on the spot by tuning in to the digital frequency and rapidly sifting thousands of combinations in seconds. The
car's expensive tracking system often only kicks in if it is driven away without the key code being cracked, or if the car is raised off the ground to be towed or put on the back of a transporter. Mr Conway said: 'Because these devices allow the thieves to effectively break the code. The tracker thinks a key is being used. 'Mine only kicked in some 40 minutes after the car was stolen, by which time it was probably well on the way to Eastern Europe.' Once the Autobiography has been unlocked by the digital key, it starts at the touch of a button.
