UK Woman Finds Stolen ₹3M Car with Tracker App Due to Police Inaction


Alexandra Vlad, a 32-year-old woman residing in London, faced a disconcerting situation when her £30,000 Lexus UX was stolen from her driveway on February 6th. Undeterred, she turned to a tracking app to locate her missing vehicle, successfully pinpointing its position six miles away in Hackney.

Contacting the authorities with this critical information, Ms. Vlad expected a swift recovery operation. However, her narrative takes an unexpected turn, alleging that the police advised her to handle the retrieval herself. Perplexed and feeling "unsafe" and "anxious," she decided to take matters into her own hands, apprehensive about potential hazards.

Upon reaching the location, Ms. Vlad discovered her car in a condition different from when it was stolen. Devoid of belongings, running on an empty tank, and with dashboard lights flashing, it appeared the thieves attempted to dismantle the tracking device.

Expressing her dissatisfaction, Ms. Vlad questioned the purpose of paying taxes to fund the police if citizens are left to resolve such situations independently. The incident sheds light on the challenges faced by victims of vehicle theft and raises concerns about law enforcement's response, especially in cases aided by technology.

Ms. Vlad, originally from Romania, decided to speak out, emphasizing her discontent with the treatment received from a public institution. "I was baffled. You pay taxes to pay for the police—just to leave it to us to sort out. What are we even paying for?" she questioned.

In response to the incident, a spokesperson from the Metropolitan Police stated, "On Tuesday, February 6, we received a report that a car had been stolen from outside a house in E13. The owner later contacted us to say she had traced the car and collected it. Enquiries continue."

The case not only highlights the potential of technology in recovering stolen vehicles but also raises questions about the role of law enforcement and public services in addressing such incidents effectively.
