He has his Jeep stolen and quickly finds it using a tracking tool

He told his story to Antoine Joubert and Germain Goyer as part of the program Le Guide de l'auto on QUB Radio.

A Jeep disappeared in the night

When they woke up, Jocelyn David and his wife realized that their Jeep Wrangler had left their property during the night. 

“ I jumped on my GPS application which is called Bouncie . The vehicle was moving on Highway 13 in Laval around 6 a.m. […] I reported 911 afterwards, which handled the file very quickly. With the app, the tracking is done almost in real time, which allowed me to transmit the location of the vehicle to the dispatcher,” says Mr. David.

The thief was subsequently intercepted, driving the vehicle, in St-Colomban in a cul-de-sac. Mr. David was able to find his vehicle at the end of the day.

Several anti-theft systems

4X4 vehicles are popular with thieves, because the demand is strong for overseas export. In Mr. David's case, this is the second time a Jeep Wrangler 4xe has been stolen from him.

Having been scalded in the past, he did not do things by halves with his current Wrangler. Indeed, his vehicle has no less than four tracking systems aimed at deterring thieves.

“ I have the Uconnect system provided by Jeep, the Tag system which is often requested by insurers, the Bouncie system. I also have a geolocation system that works with cellular waves,” says Mr. David.

A key stolen from the house?

< p>These thefts usually occur after the key has been cloned using a computer system. However, the thief seems to have used a different method in this case.

“While looking for the duplicate key, we realized that we no longer had it. […] It appears to be someone who came into our home and grabbed the key,” says David.
