We received a call from a customer reporting that one of their Atlas Copco compressors had been stolen from a worksite near Woolwich in South East London. We alarmed the Automatrics MTrack theft recovery tracking unit, however no GPS position was possible so we dispatched a radio signal finder to the Harrow search site. The secret radio signal was picked up immediately on the finders arrival, and the signal source was traced to a set of garages.


We contacted the Plant and Agricultural National Intelligence Unit (a specialist plant theft unit attached to Metropolitan Police) An officer was dispatched to support the opening or the suspect garage door to reveal the compressor and a believed stolen HHS tools hire Chemical store.


Many thanks to DC Julian Crabb form PANIU for attending site so swiftly, great teamwork !
