April 25, 2010 – We have seen an unprecedented flurry of theft activity recently: 2 theft recoveries in the past 7 days, bringing the tally to 3 in the last 3 weeks. Reports of active crime rings are coming in from across the country, and they are targeting construction equipment as well as trucks

The unfortunate reality is that if you are an equipment or truck owner, then you have a theft problem – even if you never had anything stolen in the past.

This is the most intense theft activity we have seen in almost ten years, and can only imagine how much else is actually going on outside our customer base. We strongly urge you to be on guard and doubly careful this season.
