In the early hours of October 27, 2003, Boomerang Tracking Inc. received an automatic theft notification from a Boomerang2™-equipped International 9100, valued at approximately $100,000 from St-Louis-de-Gonzague, Québec, near the city of Valleyfield. Boomerang Tracking confirmed the theft with the transportation company within minutes of receiving the alarm and a tracking team was immediately dispatched.
The Boomerang tracking team located the missing cab on a farm in Saint-Jacques-le-Mineur, Québec and the Sûreté du Québec police were immediately notified. At the scene, two 45-foot freezer trailers – one from Quebec and one from Ontario – were also recovered, each carrying a cargo of frozen goods with an estimated total value of over $220,000.
