What You Need To Know If You See A Penny Placed In Your Car Door Handle. It’s Serious!
Car thieves are constantly trying to discover some new and efficient ways to get in your car and steal your belongings – and even steal the car.
The latest news are that there have been numerous robberies using a nickel or penny!
And this is the million-dollar question – how do they use a coin to get in your car? No matter if the car is in your driveway or a parking lot, the thief places a penny or a nickel in the door handle on the side of the passenger.
But how does it work? Well, they are following you wherever you go. When you try to use the central locking key this won’t work, since the car door of the passenger side is jammed. Then, they will be able to get inside your car and steal everything, including the car, if they have the appropriate knowledge!
That’s why you should check the door from the passenger side before going in your car, to see that there is no coin in it. Also it’s well known that thieves hide in the back to carjack you using this method! Thus, it’s best to check the seat behind and call 911 in case the thief is in your trunk.
Just check out the video below, and see how thieves use the “slider” method to steal your belongings while you’re pumping gas.
