On August 30, 2012, the owner of a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck contacted the Midwest City Police Department to report that the vehicle was stolen from the owner’s residence in Midwest City. Midwest City Police verified the theft and entered the Chevy’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activates the LoJack transponder concealed in the pickup.

A short while later, an officer with the Midwest City Police Department picked up the silent homing signal from the stolen pickup with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in his patrol vehicle. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack PTC, the officer tracked and located the stolen pickup the 1500 block of Parkwood Terrace in Midwest City. The vehicle, valued at $20,000, was found parked and abandoned, and was quickly returned to the owner in good condition.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Chevrolet Silverado on August 2, 2007 at Peoples Chevrolet in Chula Vista, California.
