Angry Friends CRX stolen, please help

Well, my friends CRX was stolen last night. It was white, with JDM integra type R headlights, white rims, and a wings west body kit, i'm pretty sure its the only one in the bay area thats like this. It was stolen right in front of the house, within about 3 seconds. They have security camera's all around the house, so we figured the theif has a copy of the key. so he must be someone we know. The police said the camera pictures are too dark to tell who it is, but they'll contact us if they find it. If anyone has seen this car around, please tell us any Info, we appreciate it.

Not to be a butthole, but it's probably in Mexico by now, it is a straight shot on the 5.

We were thinking that it was the person who did an engine swap for him last week, or someone that might know him. since it literally took only 3 seconds to get in the car and drive off, thats impossible unless he had a copy of the key. we're checking that out. I think its probably stripped by now.

That sucks!
Sounds like a good ad for a hidden kill switch though.
Did it have an alarm?
BTW, these days pros have an ignition key/switch and a harness to whatever car they like to steal. Slim jim the door/keyless entry war transmit/break window, then you just pull the ignition switch wiring plug in the steering column, plug it into the carried ignition key/switch and start the car.
People were doing this in Chicago years ago and it took the cops awhile to catch on and figure out how he was starting the car.
Now days pros use this method all the time.

Also remember after getting service done to reprogram you alarm/keyless remote to be the only one that it valid for your car.
Someone might have programmed in another remote while at the shop.

I really hope everyone on here goes out and installs a kill switch right away so no one loses their car.
