GPS Tracking System Leads to Arrest of Four Men in Construction Theft

gps tracking legalA GPS tracking system led to the arrest of four suspects in a construction theft last month. The four men are accused of stealing close to $800 worth of shingles and a DeWalt tool from a construction site in Edmond, OK.

The DeWalt tool was equipped with a GPS tracking system which led police to the alleged criminals. All four suspects were taken into custody and arrested on grand larceny charges, reported Channel 9 News.

The construction company, Landmark Fine Homes, just got a huge ROI on their GPS tracking system. Without a GPS tracking system, police can take days, weeks, and even months to recover stolen assets – if they can recover anything at all.

A GPS tracking system allows an owner to track the location of their assets in real-time, and can locate a stolen vehicle or piece of equipment within minutes. Police can often recover stolen assets in less than 24 hours.

There are dozens of other reasons to have a vehicle tracking system installed. But suffice it to say that this reason is at the top of the list. Being proactive about vehicle theft prevention will help keep you from becoming a victim. And that is peace of mind we all can use.
