You may have seen a video of a duo of Jeep thieves using a laptop to hack into a Jeep's system in order to take control of it and get away. If not, you can see it below. Michael Arcee and Jesse Zelay were recently detained by Texas police while attempting to steal yet another vehicle. The Jeep thieves were able to successfully steal more than 30 Jeeps over six months in the Houston area. After seeing this footage, law enforcement agencies were able to start following and recording the pair as they set about their devious operation. It's unclear whether the Jeeps they stole were brought through the Mexican border, like reports of 100 other Fiat Chrysler vehicles that met the very same fate. They were arrested and charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Arcee was also charged with:
Felon in possession of a weapon
Possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance
