After the owner of a 2004 Chrysler Sebring Convertible discovered that his vehicle had been stolen on the evening of April 16, he filed a report with the Tulsa Police Department.

Tulsa Police completed a stolen vehicle report and had the Chrysler’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle. Neither the owner nor law enforcement agents had to do anything else to activate the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery Network, because LoJack’s interface with the police is both seamless and instantaneous.

Approximately 30 minutes later, several officers from Tulsa Police Department’s Gilcrease Division picked up the silent LoJack signal emitting from the stolen Chrysler. After obtaining a complete description of the stolen vehicle, the officers began tracking the signal, using the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol cars. Following the computer’s directional cues, the officers tracked the vehicle to the area of 2200 N. Columbia Ave in Tulsa. The officers quickly located the stolen Chrysler, parked in a driveway of a residence. After a brief surveillance, the officers took one suspect into custody to be charged with auto theft. They subsequently recovered the vehicle, and returned it to a grateful owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2004 Chrysler Sebring convertible in September 2011 in Broken Arrow, OK.
