On July 24, 2012, the owner of a 2005 Lincoln Navigator contacted the Clayton County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home.  The Clayton County Police verified the theft and entered the Lincoln’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short while later, officers in the Clayton County Ariel Support Helicopter picked up the silent LoJack homing signal on the Police Tracking Computer installed in the aircraft. Following the directional and audible signal from the LoJack computer, the officers tracked the vehicle to a home in Jonesboro. The flight officers observed an individual behind the wheel, and relayed the vehicle’s location to a ground unit in the area. With the help of the air unit overhead, the officers stopped the stolen SUV and arrested the driver.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2005 Lincoln Navigator in April of 2005 at Miami Lincoln Mercury, Inc in Florida.
