Three men stole 40 luxury cars from across Delhi-NCR over the past month using several high-tech gadgets including GPS jammers, remote-control cars and scanners. The group of three sold these luxury cars for expensive deals. These men were recently arrested by the officials in the city.  

The police said the accused were inspired by the Hollywood movie, The Fast & the Furious. “These men used scanners to unlock these luxury cars within minutes followed by using a jammer to disable the GPS installed in the cars," the deputy commissioner of police Manoj C was quoted in a PTI report.

The new keys became ready and they stole the cars within two to three minutes," the DCP said.
