However we arent truly sure where the phony Game Boy case came from. I imply, we understand that its the same case utilized in knockoff “SUPREME” Game Boys that people offer on AliExpress, but we do not understand who used it to conceal the ₤ 20,000 car-unlocking device. Either this small gang had an unique concept, or someone is selling universal crucial fobs camouflaged as Game Boys.

West Yorkshire Police identified the automobile burglars as Dylan Armer, Christopher Bowes, and Thomas Poulson. When their sentences end, theyll have a distinct story to tell their retro video gaming buddies.

A gang of Yorkshire car thieves handled to take five Mitsubishi Outlanders utilizing a gizmo camouflaged as a Game Boy. West Yorkshire Police say the device is worth ₤ 20,000 and can open and begin keyless cars and trucks in “a matter of seconds.”

Reported by the BBC, the trio of cars and truck burglars were pulled over (in their own cars and truck, not a taken one) on July 20th. Authorities discovered the “Game Boy” in a “secret compartment” and rapidly learned how it worked from a video on one of the thieves phones.

Police note that this video was told in a buffooning tone, though it exposes some important information. The “Game Boy” only works on keyless cars, and since of its intricacy, its only programmed to work with one model of car. Thats why the gang only stole Mitsubishi Outlanders.
