Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – GOST® (Global Ocean Security Technologies), celebrating its 10th year as a world leader in marine security, tracking, monitoring and video surveillance systems, announced today the successful recovery of a stolen vessel in the Bahamas.
On Saturday June 20, 2015, a homeowner in the Hopetown area of the Abacos, contacted Marsh Harbour Police and reported that his white 34-foot Jupiter power boat was missing. Accessing the vessel’s GOST NAV-TRACKER 1.0 tracking system through his secure web account, the owner pinpointed the exact location of the stolen vessel, tracked the vessel’s course and provided the information to the police. From the position reports received from the unit every 5 minutes, the Marsh Harbour Police Department was able to successfully recover the vessel with minimal damage within three hours of the first recognition of the theft. They also captured three of the thieves who were still on board and the suspects were handed over to Central Detective Unit at Marsh Harbour Police Station where they were charged for Stealing and Receiving. A fourth suspect was arrested on Monday and all four were remanded until their trial date.
“All of us at GOST are very happy that the GOST NAV-TRACKER was used to track and recover the stolen vessel and that the police were able to peacefully arrest many of those involved,” said Brian Kane, GOST’s director of research and development. “We hope that the growing use of GOST’s tracking and security systems not only increases the number of boat recoveries, but more importantly reduces the number of theft attempts which are giving a lot of bad press to the good people of Abacos. This is why many insurance companies now require tracking and security equipment on many high-end center consoles and other vessels that tend to be prime theft targets.”
The GOST NAV-TRACKER was originally created at the request of insurance companies as a low-cost GPS tracking system for their customers. The system sends multiple daily position reports at intervals selected by the user. Owners can login at anytime for a current, precise location of their vessel.
