Car thieves are a special kind of bold.

And the more technology evolves, the more adjustments they make to keep that money coming.

Auto expert @DurhamAutohaus posted this example on TikTok, and it’s kind of surprising how smart and how stupid a person can be at the same time.

He starts us up by saying,

“These thieves are getting smarter and smarter,”

He shows a pair of carjackers approaching a set of expensive trucks in the homeowner’s driveway.

Then he details the security setup.

“Both these trucks have a glass break sensor, tilt sensor, and shock sensor.”

He then explains exactly how these sensors work, and what the thieves tried doing to avoid them all.

They know!

This is a little disheartening.

Maybe their next video will be about the products that still work.
