On Thursday evening, June 7, 2012, the owner of a 2000 Lincoln Towncar returned to where she left her vehicle the night before – a parking lot in the 4300 block of Belvedere Road – to discover the vehicle missing. This is the same car that she reported stolen only the night before. The owner contacted the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office to report the crime.
Palm Beach deputies verified the theft and had the Lincoln’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.
A short while later, a deputy with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office picked up the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Lincoln Towncar on the on-board LoJack Police Tracking computer (PTC). Following the directional and audible cues on the PTC’s screen, the officer, along with backup, located the vehicle in a parking lot in the 1200 block of Brandywine Drive. The vehicle was recovered in good condition, released to the owner at the scene, and removed from federal and state crime computer systems.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Lincoln Towncar on October 21, 2002 at Maroone Chevrolet in Green Acres, Florida and has been protecting it ever since.
