Tracking device locates stolen quad bike
Victim helps police recover item within 24 hours of theft.
Police have recovered a stolen Suzuki quad bike after its owner monitored its position using a tracking device.
The bike was located in Somerset just hours after it was stolen from a farm in Payhembury, near Honiton.
It was taken, along with a trailer and a hot water pressure washer, during the early hours of yesterday (Wednesday).
A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Constabulary said: “The recovery of the quad was made possible because it had been fitted by the retailer with a tracking device which allowed the owner to monitor its position via his mobile phone and his home computer.
