Danny Dyer’s mean machine recovered

23rd November 2009 Print

Actor Danny Dyer is usually the one on the wrong side of the law in his big screen roles, but recently he was the victim of a real life crime when thieves stole his car keys and drove away in his Porsche Cayenne. TRACKER, the UK’s leading stolen vehicle recovery specialist, reveals that 75% of the stolen cars it recovers are taken using the owner’s keys.

Dyer woke up to discover that his car keys had been stolen from his house in Loughton, Essex and his Porsche was gone. Luckily, the vehicle was fitted with TRACKER’s unique stolen vehicle recovery device, which was activated and the Porsche was found by police in Barking an hour and a-half later.

“Danny Dyer is well known for playing clever criminals and even he has been caught out by these crafty thieves who obviously only had their eye on one thing,” explains Stuart Chapman, TRACKER’s Police Relationships Manager. “Mr Dyer is lucky that his car was fitted with our state-of-the-art tracking security technology. In addition, we are the only stolen vehicle recovery provider working with all 52 police forces in the UK, which proved vital in this case.”

Danny Dyer says, “I’m amazed at how quickly TRACKER recovered my car. Without the TRACKER device fitted, my Porsche would still be in the hands of thieves and I may never have recovered it. I’ll definitely be using TRACKER on all my cars from now on.”

TRACKER stolen vehicle recovery systems work like an electronic homing device. A covert transmitter is hidden in one of several dozen places around the vehicle. There is no visible aerial, so the thief won’t even know it’s there. Unlike other tracking systems, the device works even if the vehicle is hidden in a garage or taken abroad, offering car owners the ultimate in peace of mind should the worst happen.
