Four men arrested after attempted theft

FOUR men were arrested in Fairfield on suspicion of attempting to steal a vehicle by using a relay device.

Officers from the Operational Patrol Unit (OPU) made the arrests on Tuesday (December 6) morning.

The device is a wireless transmitter which captures a vehicle’s radio transmission.

It can fool keyless cars into thinking the key is close to the vehicle, so it unlocks.




A knife was also recovered from the scene.
