Customer reported his KTM 1290 motorcycle stolen from his friends garage South West of Northampton. We alarmed the unit but were unable to obtain a GPS fix so we dispatched a radio signal finder to North East Northampton (approx. 21 miles from the theft site). The Automatrics radio signal finder arrived on site just before midday to confirm the radio signal was present, and then waited patiently for police support. Police were very busy dealing with emergency calls and finally attended at 6PM.  The finder homed in on the stolen bike which was located inside a Transit van parked in a residential area. The bike could be clearly identified by its owner who attended the location by checking the front wheel which could be seen through the drivers window despite the van being locked. The Police arranged for the van to be towed off for forensics. We think other stolen goods could be inside and await further police updates.
