A man in Ontario used three hidden AirTags to track down his stolen car — and eight others.
As reported by CP24 in Toronto, a man with the last name of Lorne realized that his Range Rover had been stolen in broad daylight outside of his house. According to his account, the car theives were able to bypass the built-in tracking system from the car manufacturer to avoid being caught.
Incredibly, someone stole his new Range Rover after he replaced the old one a mere thirty days after the original theft. Thankfully, Lorne had hidden three AirTags throughout the car and was able to work with the police to locate it this time.
It's good to see at least some people are using AirTags for their intended purpose.
