Bengaluru: Police officials have arrested a 32-year-old man for allegedly hacking cars’ computer systems in order to steal them.

The arrested accused has been identified as Arun Kumar (32), from Mulabagilu, Kolar.

It is said that Arun Kumar was earlier convicted of robbery and was serving jail time. In jail, he met an accused named Rakesh who informed him about the technology.

The accused then learned how to steal cars from YouTube videos and used a specific kit to hack into vehicle systems.

He ordered an ‘X Tool’ device which is readily available online. The accused used the device to hack into the car’s computer system to gain access.

He would then change the vehicles’ number plates and sell them in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

The accused used the money to feed his gambling addiction and also go on vacations with his girlfriends.
