A three ton Thwaites dumper was reported stolen overnight from a site north of the M25. Hire company owners contacted Automatrics to request the activation of the Automatrics MTrack theft recovery device. It was not long before the covert tracker reported a position in woodlands, meaning a difficult find was to be expected. An Automatrics radio signal finder was dispatched to the search area to meet up with Hertford...shire Police. Determined find teams searched the area, but were hampered by dense undergrowth and poor visibility. Finally the dumper was successfully located just before midnight with the help of a police helicopter search light. The Automatrics finder hotwired the dumper so it could be driven to a roadside location, where he remained with the vehicle until a transporter arrived at 2am.
