‘Kia Boyz’ Social Media Challenge Shows Thieves How to Steal Cars With USB Cable

August 10, 2022

A new social media challenge called Kia Boyz shows how someone can take advantage of a possible design flaw in certain Kias and Hyundais. It involves using a USB cable as a key to start up the car. That's what police say led to a chase on a Minnesota freeway. After smashing into a concrete barrier, four teenage suspects ran into traffic before getting arrested. Captain Phil Simmert of the Milwaukee Police Department says car theft cases are through the roof thanks to the challenge.
