On June 18, 2012 the owner of a 2012 Dodge Challenger Yellow Jacket Limited Edition model contacted the Seattle Police Department to report the vehicle stolen from a parking lot near the King County Courthouse on Fourth Avenue. Apparently, the thieves took the car immediately after the owner parked it and was out of site.  Seattle Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle identification number into the state and federal crime computers. That process automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Dodge.

Just over one hour later, a Seattle Police officer received the silent LoJack homing signal transmitting from the stolen Challenger on the Police Tracking Computer installed in her patrol car.  Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the Seattle Police Department officer quickly tracked the vehicle to the 400 block of Terrace Street where it was found abandoned. It did not appear to have any damage.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Dodge Challenger  in March of 2012 at Town & Country Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge in Seattle.
