According to one recent study [pdf], they just might.

Of course, according to others, they are a crime in themselves.

Interesting, but not surprising. These electronic devices not only give thieves something to steal, but distracts the target prior to the theft.

I've become very skeptical of "studies" recently, as I think our society has lost (or never had) the ability to tell the difference between them and science.

Not that it is helpful to you to know what I think about studies, but there it is. :-)
