Car found after being fitted with tracker

A stolen car was recovered by police shortly after it was stolen according to coventrytelegraph.net. The owner of a black Audi RS3 was threatened at knifepoint at the NEC outside the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Birmingham.

The thieves drove away in the car but police managed to find them as the vehicle was fitted with a car tracker. The use of the tracker meant that the police found the car just two miles away from where it had been stolen. 

However, the thieves then rammed the police car, causing too much damage for it to pursue the Audi.

"But we managed to track it with the help of Warwickshire Police to the car park of the Heart of England Social Club in Berkswell Road, Meriden, where it had been abandoned."

If the vehicle had not had car tracking equipment installed into it, there is a chance that the Audi would have taken longer to find.

According to bbc.co.uk the owner of the vehicle was not hurt in the attack but had been left badly shaken by the ordeal.
