The 38-year-old owner, known only as John, was awakened in the middle of the night to an ominous noise when thieves smashed a window in his villa to gain access to the car keys, setting off an alarm. “I think they saw me through the window with these keys. That’s why they smashed the window,” John told Staten Island Advance (silive.com).
Car thieves are preparing to smash the window.
John was falling at lightning speed, just in time to see the thieves drive off in his car. Using his laptop, John logged into the $400,000 car’s tracking system, which allowed him to follow exactly the path the thieves had taken. „Then you activate kill switchwith which the car can be turned off remotely.
Then the thieves made frantic but futile attempts to restart the Rolls-Royce Dawn convertible. Then they fled, while John went to the place where the car had stopped. There he managed to recover his possessions.
John’s Rolls-Royce Dawn is equipped with a tracking system and a remote stop switch.

The owner of Rolls was not affected by the attempted theft. “We, the family and I, are still worried about this whole thing,” he says.
This attempt is part of a series of thefts, all of which follow the same pattern: the perpetrators first smash a window in a large villa, then grab the car keys and then take off with their expensive SUV.
