On July 5, 2012, the owner of a 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche contacted the New Orleans Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from in front of their residence in the Broadmoor area of New Orleans.  The New Orleans Police Department verified the theft and entered the Chevrolet’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short while later, officers from New Orleans Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Chevrolet Avalanche on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle as it was being driven into an apartment complex in the Mid City area of the city. The officers conducted a vehicle stop and recovered the Avalanche in great condition. The driver was arrested.  

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche in November of 2006 at Sewell Cadillac-Chevrolet, Inc. in New Orleans, Louisiana.
