A stolen Land Rover Discovery was recovered in Kenilworth last night shortly after it was taken.
Thieves took the Land Rover from the Balsall Common area but they hadn't bargained on the fact that the owner had installed a tracker on the vehicle.
Police were able to track it and found it in Kenilworth.
A spokesperson for the Warwickshire Rural Crime Team said: "We highly recommend fitting trackers to your vehicles, caravans, trailers and plant machinery. Factory fitted trackers are good but doubling up on the technology can't hurt.
"We'll be making enquiries around the area the car was found to hopefully obtain CCTV footage of the offenders."
