On September 5, 2012, the owner of a 2004 Ford F250 pickup truck contacted the Dallas Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from an apartment complex in Dallas.  

Dallas officers verified the theft and entered the Ford’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the pickup truck.

A short while later, officers from the Dallas Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Ford pickup on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the pickup to a house in the 6500 block of Hunnicut, where they found it parked in the front yard.  Officers attempted to make contact with the owner of the house, but no one answered the door.  This remains an ongoing investigation and a possible suspect has been identified.   

This stolen Ford pickup was recovered with damage only to the ignition. 

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2004 Ford F250 pickup in February of 2008 at North Central Ford.
