HORRY COUNTY (WMBF) - Pressing the lock button on a keyless entry device would make anyone feel safe and protected knowing no one can get into their vehicle. The only problem, that's not always true.
Apparently thieves are targeting those keyless entry remotes by using a device to de-code the signal and break into vehicles.
Local law enforcement agencies like the Myrtle Beach Police Department, haven't witnessed these types of crimes in the Grand Strand yet, but officers admit they know of it happening else where.
"On national news they've had coverage about these devices. If people are using their remote controls for their car locks they have this device that can pick it up and mimic the code so they can get into the vehicle after you leave," according to Captain David Knipes with the Myrtle Beach Police Department.
Captain Knipes believes this crime is just another reminder to be careful and aware of your surroundings, "If you can take that extra time to manually hit the door lock than that's something you should do."
Anne Alexiou, is a Myrtle Beach resident who uses her keyless entry routinely when getting in and out of her vehicle. She said she isn't surprised at all to hear of such a thing, "they're intercepting everything else our computers our phones and I think anything that can be sent up in the air can be intercept. It's one new way of getting us."
Alexiou admits hearing this new way criminals are targeting people has her on guard, "they can hack into anything anywhere so why not your car?"
Experts in these types of crimes have been quoted as saying these types of high tech criminals have to use the proper technology to pull something like this off.
