breaking into cars

friend of mine's a cop...had a refresher today on auto theft. turns out thieves have discovered that the type of 'pull' type locks can be opened by
drilling a small hole in a tennis ball
placing on keyhole
hittting tennis ball sharply, forcing air into lock....
if these guys got real jobs they'd be millionaires...
