Approximately $700,000 worth of stolen goods was recently recovered by Quebec police following the theft of three vehicles which had been equipped with cellular-based tracking systems (manufactured by Boomerang Tracking Inc.).
The theft of all three vehicles occurred separately on the same day, according to a Boomerang press statement, and were traced within an hour. "In less than one hour, all stolen vehicles were located and local authorities were notified. Upon obtaining a search warrant, the police uncovered both the cargo of stolen 60-inch televisions and the stolen vehicles," says Boomerang president Peter Lashchuk. Boomerang claims that over 1,000 stolen vehicles and various other valuables worth around $52 million have been recovered as a result of its tracking system.
