that log excerpt was sufficient to now be sure we cannot do anything
about these false alerts. You can only raise your alert threshold.
This happened: your GPS location suddenly went off by 200m, stayed there
for a minute, then jumped to a position off by 900m, stayed at that
point for another minute, then went back to the original park position.

Satellite count went down during that episode from 8 to 4, but the fix
wasn't lost and the HDOP was still excellent. 4 satellites normally are
sufficient for a good position, also when the alert occured, a fifth
satellite already had been locked.
IOW, that looked exactly like an actual flatbed theft would have looked.
The only thing you can do is raise your theft alert threshold to, say,
1000m. Or higher if these GPS jumps go beyond 1000m.
It seems this is a glitch in the SIM5360 GPS receiver.
