My guess is the thief didn't go far. People don't steal belongings out of vehicles expecting to find a spare key. What are the odds that someone like that also has a guy with a chop shop? Better than any of us but still not good. It's hard to steal vehicles like 15-20 years ago.Since I just bought it, i wanted to bring the spare to my family’s house over thanksgiving, so I'd put my stash key in it a few days ago so I wouldn't forget. They probably were looking for stuff to steal and found them. I didn’t know all of that previously mention tech involving the key.
