Guardia Civil in Palencia earlier this month received a distraught call from a Belgian lorry driver to say that somebody had stolen his rig.
Fortunately, the GPS system installed in the cab gave an exact location of where it had been since and where it was at that moment; within the municipality of Dueñas, Palencia, on the A-62
The police stopped the heavy-goods vehicle on the same autovía and arrested the driver, a 40-yer-old Senagalese man with residence in France. The cab and trailer were handed back, empty, to its owners.
