Go look. It is.

In particular, high end vehicles loaded with electronic control and access systems are being increasingly targetted. Up until recently thieves were conducting targetted burglaries (and in a few cases, armed home invasions) to get the ignition keys but such vehicles are increasingly being stolen without the keys being touched.
