Violent van hijack foiled by Quartix Vehicle Tracking

Posted on: March 14th, 2013 by Nicky

The award winning Quartix vehicle tracking system strikes again!

A violent attempt by thieves to try and hijack the van of a security company was foiled by Quartix Vehicle Tracking. The driver, Roger Hirsch, was stuck in slow traffic in Hoe Street in Walthamstow, when there was a sudden bump from behind him. Hirsch leapt from his cab and was shoved to the ground by a thief. At the same time, an accomplice jumped in the van and drove off. Shocked but not hurt, Hirsch quickly got on the phone to his boss at Delta Security and urged him to check the firm’s vehicle tracking system.

“I ran to my laptop, logged on to our Quartix system and entered the registration number of Roger’s van,” says the operations manager of the London firm, Dave Mundy. “A few seconds later I could see a map with the van clearly marked and showing it was travelling along the North Circular from Walthamstow towards Edmonton. I dialled 999 on the landline and asked for police.”

Mundy explained what was happening to the police and told them that he was tracking the stolen van online and could tell them precisely where it was. He was then able to inform them when the van exited North Circular and entered Tottenham’s High Road and even the exact time when it turned into a yard. “The Quartix system showed to be stationary with the ignition off,” Mundy continues. “The time was 9:59 pm. At 10:01 the first police car arrived on the scene.”
