    Report: The victim's laptop was stolen from home and connected to the Internet just a few days later. The Absolute Investigations team was able to identify the suspected user and location, and the information was then transferred to local authorities. When it was determined that the location of the stolen laptop was actually in a neighboring jurisdiction, police from both areas worked together on the case. When officials attempted to recover the laptop, it was determined that the suspected user was out of the country. The laptop was tracked in China, Japan and finally back to New Hampshire. As soon as he returned to that location, the device was recovered.

    • THEFT DATE: October 26, 2013
    • Location: Washington DC, USA
    • Details: Theft from vehicle
    • Model: HP ProBook 6550b
    • RECOVERY DATE: March 13, 2014

    • Absolute Investigator: Steve K.
    • Criminal Charges: None

    Report: The laptop in this case was stolen from a vehicle in the fall and quickly locked down to prevent identity theft. Due to that action, the device was monitored without action for several more months before Absolute forensic tools identified a suspected user and location. At that time, the report was transferred to local authorities, who took over the investigation. Less than two hours after police received the information from the Absolute Investigations team, the stolen laptop was recovered. The suspected user stated the device had been purchased during a street deal.

    • THEFT DATE: December 18, 2012
    • Location: Oregon, USA
    • Details: Theft from vehicle
    • Model: Dell Latitude XT2
    • RECOVERY DATE: March 12, 2014
    • Location: Oregon, USA
    • Absolute Investigator: Gerald H.
    • Criminal Charges: None

    Report: The victim reported this laptop stolen from a vehicle in December, but it did not connect to the Internet until January. The connection was brief and the location was not identified at that time. It was not until March of the following year that the laptop went online and Absolute LoJack was able to begin tracking the signal. The Absolute Investigations team used sophisticated forensic tools to identify the suspected user and location. The local police department that received the case was unable to help at that time, so a detective in the neighboring jurisdiction where the laptop was believe to be located agreed to secure the recovery. As expected, the laptop was obtained from the suspect and returned to the victim.
