Boomerang, a company that sells tracking devices to pinpoint stolen vehicles, recovered its 5,000th car there a few years ago. “It is known as a place where you recover stolen vehicles,” says Michael Lendick, Boomerang’s national security director. “You’re going to find some chop shops; you’re going to find places where they sell car parts that are stolen.”
