Just One Tracker Device Is All Takes

TRACKER helps South Yorkshire police uncover four stolen vehicles and criminal gang

South Yorkshire 'chopper coppers' hit gold when a TRACKER unit in a stolen Land Rover led them to a clutch of stolen vehicles in the process of being stripped down by thieves. TRACKER, the UK's number one stolen vehicle recovery company, helped police uncover a crime operation in Rotherham, leading to arrests and the recovery of three additional vehicles.

Police on the trail of a stolen Land Rover, tracked the vehicle using the TRACKER signal emitting from the stolen vehicle to the Wales area of Rotherham using the South Yorkshire police helicopter. Officers on the ground then tracked the vehicle to the driveway of a private house under renovation in the Kiverton Park area. After a few enquiries, the owner of the house was arrested.

Following a further search, another Land Rover 110 without a TRACKER unit, was found on the driveway. This vehicle had been stolen from Nottingham earlier in the month. Inside the property was a partially stripped Suzuki 650 motorcycle, which had also been stolen from Nottingham. Finally, in the rear garden, police found another Land Rover, which had been stolen from Derby.

PC Wood of the South Yorkshire police says, "If it hadn't been for the TRACKER device fitted to the Land Rover we may well have not found that vehicle or the other stolen vehicles. One man has been arrested and our enquiries are on going."

"TRACKER is the only stolen vehicle recovery provider working with all 52 police forces in the UK," explains Stuart Chapman, Police Relationship Manager for TRACKER. "This case is yet further proof of the effectiveness of our partnership with the police and the power of our unique vehicle recovery system. Once again TRACKER has played a key role in catching car thieves and helping return stolen vehicles to their rightful owners."

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.
