Tracked the thief until the car ran out of power.
Today, most people know that stealing a Tesla would be stupid when you first steal a car. All models are equipped with fine-tuned tracking and locking mechanisms that make it difficult to break into at first, and very easy to track down once you have been able to run with it.
Was arrested after a few hours
Recently, a Tesla thief experienced this when he was arrested after stealing a Tesla from a parking lot. It is uncertain how the person got into the car, but the owner understood it quickly and provided the necessary information to the police who followed the thief.
The owner is supposed to have updated police officers with real-time information on where the car was at any time, whereupon the car ran out of power on the highway and the thief was arrested by the police.
For it to prove that it is not an easy task to steal a Tesla and get away with it: Electrek writes that 112 of 115 stolen Tesla's have settled in the United States. In Europe, on the other hand, the tone is different, and the thieves have been more sophisticated in their attempts and therefore far fewer stolen Teslaer have come to terms.
Recently, the company introduced a so-called Sentry Mode to overcome this problem.
