Stolen vehicle recovered in Mossel bay area due to proper coverage of entrance and exit routes by NAVIC™ ANPR!
The vehicle was flagged on Navic Cloud as stolen. An investigation by a SAPS member on the NAVIC™ system showed that the vehicle did not leave the area where it was stolen from. SAPS started a search because if the stolen vehicle left the area it would be picked up by NAVIC™ cameras. In a short time, the vehicle was recovered; saving SAPS time by limiting the area of the search for the stolen vehicle. At the time the vehicle was recovered by SAPS it had not even circulated on the SAPS system. No arrests were made at this time.
Proper covering of entrance and exit routes of your area by NAVIC™ ANPR cameras can minimize the loss of revenue of stolen property.

NAVIC™ personnel immediately uploaded the vehicle details to Navic Cloud.
Soon afterwards, the vehicle was seen by Navic.Cloud cameras near Cookhouse which triggered an alert. Three people were arrested and two firearms were seized by Cookhouse SAPS after chasing the vehicle down. The fourth suspect is still at large and the victims are recovering in the hospital.
