Electronic (ala Comfort Access) Lock Hacked Caught on Security Cam

This incident occurred not too far from where I am a while, back. Security cam captures a thief who opens an Audi door by hacking the electronic lock with a device in his hand. He then steals an expensive bike, walks away, and returns to lock the door (video not visible on the mobile site of the source):

Also, a noteworthy NY Times piece on how thieves are hacking electronic car locks:

Original new story and video:

As my wife jokes, she is going to keep the keys in the fridge (poor batteries).
