How does a car thief know whether or not a stolen car has been fitted with security tracking devices? Anthony Pearce knows:
Criminals will ‘pinch and park’ vehicles, which may have been fitted with security tracking devices, to stop police catching them.
The tactic involves them parking the car in a safe place for several days in case police have access to GPS data.
A new report by the government says that if the car has not been picked up by the police after a few days, the thief knows they are safe to move it to a workshop. There they will change the plates.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
