Nav found them. His management powers extend to the real world.

I still don't get it. Did the satnav system inform the police or what?

My guess is that they were in the frame as known super villains, and the SatNav spilled the beans.

Well either that of the police did a text search on the satellite for "burglar"

Or the government is using a tracking device that records all movement of cars using satnav systems!!! Big Brother is watching cars!

That would almost certainly be it.

The police found the criminals with normal enquiries probably. Someone may have seen the vehicle leave the scene, a DVLA check brought up the address of the company vehicle. Police checked out the address, checked the log of who was driving and had all the evidence they needed on the SatNav system.

The SatNav could just be used to prove the where-abouts of the car at certain times.
