On August 2, 2012, the owners of a 2008 Cadillac contacted the East Point Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the mall while they were out with friends.  The East Point Police verified the theft and entered the Cadillac’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short while later, an officer with the Georgia State Patrol picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Escalade on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers from State Patrol tracked the vehicle to an abandoned house.

The Trooper called an East Point Detective to the location to assist with a search of the nearby homes; however, the suspect could not be located.  The Detective took some prints of the stolen SUV for a possible arrest at a later date.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2008 Cadillac on February 3, 2012 at Capital Cadillac in Smyrna, Georgia.
