How were they stolen (if you can say without revealing too much)?

They open van with a tool off internet so don't damage your locks and this tool also acts to enable them to get a spare key cut ,they then simply unlock the van and plug in a key programmer ,code in the new key and then drive away ..the whole process takes less than 3 minutes .ive advised all people I know to cut the 16 wire so that the key programmer can not be used as it needs a power supply which it takes from the van ,cutting 16 wire removes the power supply

Thanks, does this apply to certain makes and year(s)? Doesn't affect me personally but might be helpful to members who could be.

It's transits that are taken using this method and all ones I know about are either mk6 or mk7
