GPS asset tracking foils thieves again September 19, 2007Posted by Rich in : GPS asset tracking , trackback
Earlier this week, three people were arrested in Los Angeles, unaware that the $60,000 in construction equipment they had stolen included a GPS asset tracking device. Guy Yocom Construction employees alerted police to the theft Monday morning, along with the fact that a GPS tracking device was included.
Police tracked the men to A AAA Mini Storage in Harbor Gateway, where investigators recovered more than $60,000 worth of generators, jackhammers, nail guns and other tools, Los Angeles police Detective Lou Koven said.
Later, detectives impounded a second van parked on a South L.A. street. Koven said he believed it contained another $60,000 in stolen property.
