Can the verizon wireless cards be tracked?

Ok, I'm not sure if this is the right section, but about 3 or 4 months ago someone broke into my stepdads pickup truck and stole his laptop and bag. So for christmas my sister was going to give my mom her netbook for my step dads verizon internet card (the kind which you get a number for and pay like 60 dollars a month) which he hadnt been using, and thats when I realized that the card was in the bag that was stolen. I think this was why my step dads phone bill had jumped up to about $400 over the last few months, so I'm pretty positive whoever stole the laptop has been using the internet card and going way over the usage limit. So my question now is, can the cards be tracked? I'll try to get more specifics in a bit, I don't know the model of the card, if thats even relevant, but I'll find out and tell yall. Thanks for any help you can provide

From what I understand, is that the internet card connects to cell towers  the same way as a phone, so they can track location by proximity of a cell tower. But it is not like a GPS or low-jack. Don't hink you'll be able to pinpoint the exact location, just within a range.

Why in the world didn't he call Verizon and cancel the card?  The Verizon bill clearly shows all the charges for each and every telephone number.  The mobile broadband card has a distinct telephone number assigned to it.  This makes no sense.

Yeah, I know, I agree. I was going to ask that too.
