Within 1-hour of determining the 416D backhoe was missing, the police had the machine
in hand--400 miles from where it was stolen. The amazing thing is that the police
started examining the other equipment on the job site and in the surrounding area.
They found another stolen piece of equipment: a 420D backhoe loader. Together these
two pieces of equipment are valued at over $140,000.

These theft rings are bigger and run deeper than most can even imagine--with teams
of experienced thieves and transporters, and well-connected networks of sellers
and buyers of stolen vehicles, big-dollar construction equipment and other pricey,
These guys work around the clock. They're growing every day, while our budgets are
shrinking. But thanks to HeavyTrack's GPS/cellular technology, we're hot on their
tracks and catching more in the act every week.
