We took a call Friday night from a customer who discovered his Piaggio GTS 300 scooter had been stolen from Kings Cross. We alarmed the unit for live tracking and an Automatrics finder was deployed. The bike was successfully located Saturday morning using GSM and RF location with two officiers supporting from the Met Police. The bike had been hidden behind a block of flats in Islington.

 

Police detailed a moped gang had been reported riding this stolen scooter brandishing machetes on Friday evening in at least one attempted car jacking operation. Serious stuff... but the customer invested wisely to fit his tracking unit just 8 days earlier. So not only did he get his scooter back, the Met also took some tools the bandits left behind for forensic tests... so lets hope that enables a police prosecution !
