Tools, Cash and Keys Stolen from Car Garage

Unfortunately, Dee Coleman experienced just that when he entered his classic car garage and saw light coming through an area where previously there were no windows. Someone had ripped into the side of his building and robbed the garage.

Among the items stolen were $10,000 in specialized tools, some cash, Coleman's personal credit card and the keys to every vehicle in the building.

Coleman's greatest concern was that the stolen keys provided the burglar access to every classic car in his garage. He had no choice but to replace the ignition and lock on each vehicle, which cost him $5,000.

Coleman's experience demonstrates why it is crucial to secure keys with an electronic key system to keep valuable assets safe.
