The incidence of car thefts in US has risen steadily over the past couple of years and keeping your vehicle locked in a garage isn’t enough to deter thieves. Not only will they still take your car, but they may then use it to continue their spree.
In a recent incident in San Jose, California, a home was broken into on a weekday between 12:30 and 12:55pm. The thieves took valuables and then fled in the homeowners car that was parked in the garage. The car was then used in a number of other robberies in San Jose, and surrounding areas. There was a police-involved car chase, but the robbers managed to flee, and eventually abandoned the vehicle. The robbers are still at large.
If the owners of the stolen vehicle had a T3 Tracker installed they would have been able to use the 3-way call feature to alert the police department closest to the vehicle’s location of the theft. The police would then also have access to the exact GPS location of the vehicle and the owner could remotely disable the car’s starter, leading the police right to them. In this case, the car would most likely have been returned to the owners quickly, without the car chase, and they may have been able to get all of their valuables back. It also would have prevented the subsequent break-ins and the thieves would have been caught.
It is always a good idea to keep your car doors locked and valuables out of sight. But unfortunately, even a garage isn’t guaranteed protection. For more information on the T3 Tracker and to order yours, go here, https://www.911tracker.com/products.
TECH TIP: When T3 is in temporary Master Mode, T3 automatically sends text notification if vehicle ignition is either on or off but the vehicle starts moving.
