'Relay theft has become a particularly popular method, due to the speedy and stealth nature of the technique.
If you're not familiar with how Relay Theft works, it is a non-invasive keyless theft technique using basic equipment that can be easily sourced and purchased on the internet.
Thieves use a basic radio transmitter to break in to the car by over riding the locking mechanism.
Cars most at risk are those parked on driveways, as thieves can literally relay the signal from the keys inside the home to the vehicle due to the close proximity.
The ridiculously simplistic method is quick and effective, and can be done without breaking in to the vehicle or drawing any attention to the perpetrator.
To give a numerical indication of how effective this is for thieves, 85,000 cars were stolen in 2017 and 70 per cent of these were without the car keys being taken first.
