Case Number: 1K1D6K | Days to recover: 4 | Location: California, USA Details: Theft from school | Investigator: Gerry H.
Report: The computer in this case was stolen during the burglary of an elementary school. In addition to this device, more than 15 other machines were also taken; only two were protected by Absolute LoJack. When police received the report, they suspected a known thief might be responsible for the burglary. The Absolute Investigations team began monitoring the computer the day after it was stolen and compiled a report for local law enforcement agents. The detective contacted the identified user, who reported the computer had been purchased by his father. The sale was then traced back to the suspected thief detectives believed responsible for the crime. Police conducted surveillance on the suspect and were then able to recover more than 30 of the other stolen devices. The suspect was charged with a multitude of crimes – all this while he was out on bail from a similar arrest just a few years ago!
