The FBI has rolled up a gang that stole 150 high-tech Jeep Wranglers worth $ 4.5 million, the US Department of Justice has announced this officially on their site. According to the charges, the gang members had done their homework well before trying to steal a specific vehicle.

For example they knew in advance to get the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) by making a picture of the dashboard. Then they managed to win the secret key codes, allowing them to create double keys for a specific jeep. In this case, a computer chip in the key had to be programmed to match the computer of the Jeep.
