GPS Tracking Devices Foil Thieves


About a week ago we posted a story about a bank robbery that was unsuccessful due to a GPS tracking device being installed in the money bag. Today we here of another similar story involving a liquor theft.

The liquor truck was stolen in British Columbia, Canada with about 200 cases of liquor. A GPS Fleet Tracking device had been installed in the truck so authorities simply looked at the map of the truck’s route. It parked outside a home for about an hour before being discarded.

Mounties obtained a warrant for the home and you will never believe what they found inside…. hundreds of bottles of liquor.

  1. I work for a company that uses Qualcomm mobile messaging units to keep track of semi-truck, trailers and trains. We had a case where a manager of a train yard kept having complaints from customers about the trailers arriving with dirt and other ‘questionable’ matter inside. Using the Qualcomm’s built in GPS we were able to find that at night the trailers would mysteriously leave the yard and would come back a few hours later without anyone at the yard any wiser… needless to say that after the mysterious disappearing act we got the police to lay in wait and lo behold a cattle rancher was ‘borrowing’ the trailers to move his cows back and forth between fields.
