GPS in Stolen Van Puts Instant Halt to Thief's Day of Crime

GPS Tracking Catches ThiefThe NZ Herald reporter Elizabeth Binning did a great story on how a GPS tracking device stopped a car theif dead in his tracks.


A car-thief had his 'day of crime' plans bought to an abrupt halt by the Police all due to the GPS tracking system that was installed in the van he'd stolen and once the owner contacted the Police, they were led straight to him.

Senior Sergeant Richardson of the North Shore Police received a phone call from the vans owner around 11am advising that someone had stolen their van and they were currently tracking it on the GPS tracking system that was installed in the van.

The owner remained on the line to the Police updating them of it's movements and which direction it was travelling etc which of course directed them straight to it's location.


* A 22 year old Henderson man was due to appear before the North Shore District Court the following morning charged with unlawfully taking a motor vehicle, together with possession of instruments for conversion. He also faced charges of failing to appear in court on other unrelated matters.

Aside from the business advantages, this is a prime example on how the benefits of a professional GPS tracking device installed into your vehicle can protect it against theft.  However, it is important to note that it is the tracking software which is the crucial part and this is supported by the successful outcome of this particular incident.

Impounded Nissan Taken For Joyrides at 2am

We are also aware of another incident in which a Nissan Silvia had been impounded by the Police under the 'Hoon' laws which also had a GPS tracker fitted to it. The owner of that vehicle was extremely annoyed to see by her vehicle tracking reports the following morning that it had been taken out of the impound yard on it's first night for a joyride not once, but twice at around 2am in the morning!

She filed a complaint with the Police and asked that the vehicle be returned to her as she did not believe it was safe where it was. The Police agreed to investigate it and the manager of the impound yard said that the vehicle had not been taken out for a joyride.

This vehicle was monitored by sophisticated tracking software which quite clearly showed the exact route it went on in both instances together with the excessive recorded speeds it travelled  (up to 120kph) in a residential zone.

There were no further reports as to the results of the Police investigation and/or the subsequent outcome.

But, here are two instances showing that by having a GPS tracking system installed in your vehicle(s), whether for business or personal, it can greatly assist the welfare of your buisness and vehicle in a number of ways.
