Police in Florida said they are searching for a man whose alleged pirate radio station jammed the signal from dozens of keyless entry systems for cars.

Hollywood police said people were left baffled for months as to why their keyless systems were not working, and some found they no longer had the problem when they left the area, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.

Investigators said the culprit is believed to be a pirate radio station that had been broadcasting on 104.7 FM from the roof of the eight-story Regents bank building, one block from police headquarters.

Police seized the man's equipment and said a man who identified himself as "Jay" called building maintenance workers shortly afterward to ask if they had taken his equipment.

The man could be arrested on felony charges bearing a fine of at least $10,000 from the Federal Communications Commission, police said.
