Stolen Vehicle Locates


IBRC's vehicle theft investigators are experts at tracking down stolen cars and trucks. In the U.S., a vehicle is stolen approximately every 45 seconds, with over three quarters of a million cars stolen per year, and at a cost of billions of dollars in property loss. Every year, California has led the United States in motor vehicle thefts, both in total vehicles stolen, and in thefts per capita. According to the latest National Insurance Crime Bureau reports, just in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim metropolitan area alone, over 60,000 cars were stolen in 2016.

Los Angeles Stolen Vehicle Locates

Vehicle thefts occur in a number of ways: for example, a car can be stolen from a public place like a shopping mall or grocery store parking lot, or when it is simply parked on the side of a street; it can be taken from a private residence (driveway, garage, etc.), and vehicles are often stolen from the courtyards of car and truck dealerships. Some people even steal cars from vehicle rental agencies by using a fake ID to rent the car, then simply never returning it.

Even for people with fully comprehensive insurance who may be able to recoup their financial loss, having your vehicle stolen can still be a huge inconvenience. But for people whose insurance does not cover auto theft, the results can be devastating. In addition to your beloved method of transport suddenly being gone, and having very little recourse, if the car is financed, you're still going to be on the hook for all those ongoing finance payments, or risk (at a minimum) your credit being destroyed for years to come, or the possibility of becoming the defendant in a costly law suit.

How IBRC's Los Angeles Private Investigators can help find stolen vehicles:


Most police departments have neither the time, resources or manpower to invest in locating your stolen vehicle. The best you can usually hope for is that it turns up abandoned, or that they happen to see it on the street and run the tag. IBRC is a licensed private investigation agency based in the Los Angeles area, owned and operated by retired law enforcement detectives with decades of experience in investigating stolen vehicles.


Our investigators have a myriad of tools, methods, as well as tried and tested investigative techniques that can help locate stolen vehicles. At times, we may use technology to locate your car, such as license plate readers, video cameras and GPS. More often, we will rely on our many years of interviewing and neighborhood canvassing skills from our days in law enforcement. We may also use our extensive social media networks to engage and alert the community.


In addition to finding vehicles that have been stolen, we also locate cars and trucks for banks and fiance companies where the 'purchaser' has fallen significantly behind on payments, or have simply stopped paying altogether. Although at this time, we do not repossess vehicles ourselves, we have assisted repo companies locate difficult-to-find vehicles that are already subject to repossession.


Whatever reason you need to locate a vehicle, IBRC investigators can help. Contact us today for more information and a free consultation.


Below are some tips provided by the Los Angeles Police Department that can help you to avoid being the victim of a car thief:


  • Never leave your car running unattended, even to dash into a business, store, etc.;
  • Never leave any keys in the car or ignition, inside a locked garage, or in hide-a-key boxes;
  • Always roll up your windows and lock the car, even if it is parked in front of your home;
  • Never leave valuables in plain view, even if your car is locked. Put them in the trunk out of sight;
  • Always park in high-traffic, well-lighted areas, when possible;
  • Install a mechanical device that locks the steering wheel, column, or brakes. These devices will deter some criminals;
  • Investigate the purchase of a vehicle theft tracking/security system, especially if you own one of the frequently stolen model vehicles;
  • Never leave personal identification documents, vehicle ownership title, or credit cards in your vehicle;
  • Copy your license plate and vehicle information (VIN) numbers on a card and keep them with you. If your vehicle is stolen, the police will need this information to take a report; and,
  • If your vehicle is stolen, report it to the police immediately.
Remember, there is no guarantee that your car will not be stolen, but taking precautionary measures can minimize your chances of becoming the victim of auto theft. Source:  http://www.lapdonline.org
