TULARE – Three area residents were arrested after Tulare County Sheriff’s deputies attached a GPS tracking device to a motorcycle that was stolen and hidden in a walnut orchard near Tulare.

I read stories about recovered items and arrests made due to GPS tracking all the time. People hide GPS units in everything from bicycles to hay bales and and pretty much anything of value. This story has a slightly different slant.
Police found a stolen motorcycle which was part of a heist, but no sign of the crooks and the rest of the home burglary takings. Instead of expending lots of staff to lie in wait and potentially spook the crooks, they put a GPS unit on the stolen motorcycle and monitored.
Before too long, the motorcycle was found to be on the move, albeit on the back of a Chevrolet pickup and three arrests were made.
Congratulations to the Tulare County Sheriff’s deputies who had the foresight to use GPS to save time and resources through the smart use of technology which resulted in locating both the crooks and the property and the evidence they needed to link them.
