On July 5, 2012, the owner of a Ford F250 pickup truck contacted the Tukwila Police Department to report the vehicle stolen from the owner’s residence in the 4700 block of Southcenter Boulevard during the previous night. Tukwila officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle’s identification number into the state and federal crime computers. That process automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Ford.

Less than ten minutes later, an officer with the SeaTac Police Department received the silent LoJack homing signal transmitting from the stolen Ford pickup on the Police Tracking Computer installed in his patrol car. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the truck was located in the 2200 block of NE 28th Street in Renton. Renton Police responded to handle the recovery. The only damage was to the ignition switch and lock.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Ford F250 in August of 2007 at the owner’s request when he purchased it at Korum Ford in Puyallup, Washington.
