On August 2, 2012, the owners of a 2005 Hummer H2 contacted the Ogden Police Department to report that their SUV was stolen. Ogden Police verified the theft and entered the Hummer’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.
A short while later, troopers with the Utah Highway Patrol began picking up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Hummer on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles.
Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the troopers tracked the vehicle to a residential neighborhood near the 1400 block of Fowler, where they located the abandoned SUV. The Hummer was recovered intact, only a few hours after being activated by Ogden City Police Department. It was released back to very grateful and lucky owners.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Hummer H2 in May of 2005 at Cerritos Pontiac in Cerritos, California.
