Tracker helps in car crime ring clampdown

11th March 2010 Print

Once again TRACKER, the UK’s leading stolen vehicle recovery company, has been instrumental in helping police close the net on organised crime. When TRACKER’s stolen vehicle recovery device located a stolen Golf GTi, police were led to a crime ring and a clutch of stolen cars.

“I felt utterly shocked and confused when I received the automated movement alert from TRACKER, informing me of a possible unauthorised movement of my car.” says Mr Glover, owner of the stolen Golf GTI. “Thankfully, because of the movement alert, I was able to act quickly, and report the theft to Warwickshire Police. To my relief, it meant my car was found the very next day”.

“This is another great result for TRACKER and a clear indication of the effectiveness of our tracking devices in helping recover vehicles and aiding police in the arrest of organised criminals,” says Stuart Chapman, Police Relationship Manager for TRACKER. “Not only did we recover Mr Glover’s car, but 19 other stolen vehicles were found simultaneously. This demonstrates our partnership with the police, combined with our unique stolen vehicle recovery system was instrumental in this case and the clampdown on vehicle crime rings.”

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 shipping container, offering car owners the ultimate in peace of mind should the worst happen.
