In the last several weeks thieves have been stealing "work" type trucks and vans in Fremont, resulting in thousands of dollars in lost property. Several have been equipped with GPS locating features and logs showing where the vehicle is. Most of these vehicles equipped with GPS trackers have been swiftly recovered by officers and community service officers, but the tools, computers and equipment is gone. In an effort to deter auto theft in the first place, officers are recommending truck, van and specifically Honda owners to purchase a wheel clamp type device (similar to a "boot") and use it during the night when parking your vehicle outside.
