Dolphin Haulage in the town of Midleton, Cork http://dolphinhaulage.com/ have Boomerang Tracker to thank for preventing the theft of €100,000 of heavy machinery!
Mark Dolphin, proprietor, who refers to the Boomerang GPS Tracker as his "Mobile Tracker" to differentiate it from his GPS Fleet Management trackers in his Trucks, attached it to a parked 'low-loader' trailer on the night of March 28th. Sitting on the trailer was a Volvo BM 6x6. The load was due to be hauled at 6am on Friday March 29th.
Around 1.30am on the Friday morning (March 29th) Mr Dolphin's cellphone woke him. He was receiving alerts from his 'Mobile Tracker' advising him that the "Shock Sensor" was being triggered. This immediately indicated that his rig was being tampered with. He dialled the Boomerang Tracker and eavesdropped on the ambient sound and could hear men preparing to link the trailer to a truck -intent on stealing the gear.
Quick acting, Mark called the local Police and gave them the location of the truck. He also drove there rapidly himself -not being far away, but had the presence of mind not to engage the thieves himself fearing being attacked. Instead, he observed them quietly and updated the Police control room via his cellphone who in turn communicated developments to the responding Patrol vehicles.
In less than an hour, Mark's equipment was safe and three criminals were behind bars in a Police station facing a stretch in prison.
All thanks to Mark's "Mobile Tracker". It's a Boomerang Tracker, Mark... eh, I mean Mr Doplhin. Sir! ;)
