TRACKER helps reunite Kent resident with stolen BMW X5 in 5 hours
Date: 30 April 2013
Thanks to TRACKER, the UK’s leading stolen vehicle recovery company, the Metropolitan Police successfully recovered a stolen BMW X5. The vehicle was found in just 5 hours, demonstrating TRACKER’s unique partnership with the police and reinforcing the value and effectiveness of its powerful, award-winning technology.
A Kent resident’s BMW X5 was stolen from his drive overnight and local police were alerted to the theft at 7.15am. Once the TRACKER unit was activated, the silent radio signal led police to the missing BMW which was located in the London Borough of Bexley.
“Luckily the inconvenience to my family was minimal as our car was recovered in just 5 hours,” Mr. Dhesi, owner of the stolen BMW X5 comments. “My family rely heavily on this car as its size is great for ferrying us all where we need to and being without it would be a real headache. Fortunately, we got it back very quickly and we were saved from the inconvenience of having to make a claim on the insurance. We’re all so happy at the quick recovery of the BMW, I’m now considering installing a TRACKER device in another family vehicle.”
“Another fantastic result”, says TRACKER
“This is another fantastic result for police and motorists, as we continue to help them close the net on vehicle thieves,” explains Stuart Chapman, TRACKER’s Police Relationships Manager. “Fitting a TRACKER unit can significantly increase the chances of police recovering a vehicle, providing car owners with added peace of mind.”
TRACKER is the only vehicle tracking system operated by all police forces in the UK and it was this technology which alerted the Metropolitan Police to the location of the stolen vehicle.
