Leader in Vessel Security Systems Catches Thief In The Act – Prevents the Event
Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – GOST® (Global Ocean Security Technologies), a world leader in marine security, tracking, monitoring and video surveillance systems, announced today that its GOST NT-Evolution 2.0 SM Package was instrumental in stopping the theft of a 32 foot Intrepid in Fort Myers, Florida.
The attempted theft occurred around 5 a.m. on the morning of June 14th. The boat owner, Lynn Kirby, received a “Security Alert” text message from his GOST system. Although he was out of town, Kirby had left his neighbor, a retired law enforcement officer, a spare set of keys. The neighbor was alerted by an active alarm and strobe. Concerned, he went down to the docks to check on the boat and contacted Kirby to tell him that the system was in alarm. Wet footprints on the dry dock, lead the neighbor to surmise that the perpetrators arrived from the water to attempt the theft. Luckily, when the system’s siren and strobe when into alarm, the would be thieves were scared off and there was no property lost.
“In the few weeks that I’ve owned the boat, I’ve only put about 12 hours on her,” said Kirby. “These would-be thieves came in from the water like pirates and all they got is a pair of dirty shorts. Thanks to my GOST system I get to actually enjoy my new purchase.”
“We are always excited to hear stories about how our products make a difference,” said Jay Keenan, president, GOST. “Our client was lucky that he had the foresight to install our NT-Evolution 2.0 SM right after taking delivery of his boat. It is unfortunate that our services are necessary, but we are proud to have been instrumental in safeguarding his investment.”
