Default steal brand new cars using duplicate keys?

The gang had planted boys at various authorised service centres and showrooms for identifying vehicles to be stolen. The same boys would also help the gang obtain duplicate keys.

one of my close friends brand new pulsar150 was robbed 5days ago,it had a autocop fitted,he just parked the bike for 10mins and went to get something and found the bike wasn't in place he searched for each and every police station if it was lifted by the towing van,but results were negative,no matter what ever you put in the car,if it has to be robbed it will,the best thing is make the building watchman pally,he will take care of your car or have a garage.If you go to see nowdays maximum cars are parked on the road or in a different lane-galli near your house which is an open invitation to theft,cant help it seems.
