Did it take 5 to 6 hours because the cops stopped for lunch on the way?

Were they perhaps, tracked?

This reminds me of a story. When I was in college working for Geek Squad, a redneck broke into the Geek Squad van and stole the Garmin GPS (2007ish). Smashed the window out, and I was walking back with a coworker and we saw it, called the cops, and they arrested him within an hour. Ridiculous lol

Who the hell would buy that kind of equipment if the thieves got away?
