We took a call Monday morning from a customer reporting his Bobcat B10 Z 1 ton Mini Excavator had been stolen from a residential site near Sheffield.  Apparently the theft was caught on camera by a neighbour who filmed three men involved between 4-5PM on Sunday 16th May 2021, until he was then spotted and attacked with a ratchet strap.



We remotely triggered the Automatrics MTrack system to connect and report a GPS position some 120 miles away in a residential street on the outskirts of Middlesbrough. The customer meet with police at the search location 2 hours later to knock the door where the digger had been parked on a drive. The door opened and a male individual reported that he purchased the machine, but then proceeded to run fr the scene. The machine looked to be undamaged and the police will follow up their enquiries for a possible arrest.
