Do Bosch system/battery firmware upgrade systems check for stolen serial numbers?


Esteemed Pedelecer
I had a 500W/Hr Bosch battery ripped out of my Scott bike recently. I will file a crime report and I've sent a note to the LBS where it was bought.

It would be great to know that, if the battery is plugged into Bosch upgrade equipment at an authorised repair centre, that the serial number would be detected and flagged as stolen. Is this a thing in the Bosch ebike ecosystem, and how can I notify Bosch of the stolen status?

motors and batts do have a sn but will only show up in a detailed dealer report and out of warranty will cost about 50 quid so doubt they would ever get it updated esp if they know it was stolen.
