Yes, LoJack works internationally! When the owner of the 2002 BMW learned that his car had been stolen, he reported it to the police. The police then entered the vehicle’s information into the nationwide law enforcement stolen vehicle computer system.
A few hours after the owner reported his car stolen to Beaumont Police Department, the silent LoJack signal from the stolen car was picked up in Mexicali, Mexico. A Baja State Police Officer, working in conjunction with the Mexico LoJack licensee Carmart, had received the signal on his LoJack tracker installed in his police car. Mexicali is approximately 150 miles from where the car had been stolen.
After a few minutes of tracking the signal, the officer observed the car and made a felony stop. The car was occupied by two suspects, one of which admitted stealing the car and driving to Mexicali with the intent of selling the car.
Both United States citizen suspects were arrested and booked for auto theft.
The California Highway Patrol Mexico Liaison Unit was assisting with the procedure following the arrest and to bring the car back to the United States.
