 Note this and avoid being a victim of  the latest car robbery tactic — there is a device that robbers are using now to clone your security code when you  lock the doors on your car using your Key-chain locking  device…. they sit a distance away  and watch for their next victim.

They fused it to part of the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument, a memorial to Revolutionary War soldiers. As of press time, the sculpture was still there.
