Ford safety warning: Ford Focus stolen from driveway in 15 seconds after keyless theft

This has increased from 92 percent in 2019 and represents a 27 percent rise over the last five years.

Clive Wain, Head of Police Liaison for Tracker said: “Not that long ago, thieves would typically break into homes to steal keys to retrieve cars.

“But as these thefts clearly show, technology – despite being extremely sophisticated – enables thieves to take cars within seconds using kit they can buy easily from the internet.

“Watching the CCTV footage from the first theft, before the camera lens was smeared, you can clearly see one thief waving a laptop bag by the front door, while two others leap into the vehicle once the key fob in the home had been triggered.”
