In what can be termed as the most foolish theft ever, two car thieves were caught when they removed the tracker device they stole from a Range Rover, and left it in their own vehicle.

The thieving duo Laith Khan and Atiq Rahman, both from Birmingham, stole the car from a solicitor’s driveway but were themselves tracked by police who found them in a BMW just over two miles away.

 

The pair admitted stealing the £75,000 Range Rover and both received suspended prison sentences at Warwick Crown Court after surprised officers discovered them in their own car rather than the stolen vehicle.

The Range Rover was recovered 14 hours later in Solihull, after a resident noticed damage to its cowling and realised it had been stolen.

According to the owner of the Rover, shortly after midnight he was alerted by the tracker company that something was wrong and realised that the car was stolen.

The alert had come within minutes of the Range Rover being taken, and the tracker signal led the police to Berry Hall Lane, Solihull, just over two miles away.

Rather than the Range Rover, the signal was coming from a BMW registered to Khan.

When the police stopped it and arrested the two men, they found the tracker, which had been removed from the Evoque, in the car.
