On September 6, 2012, the owner of a 2007 Cadillac Escalade contacted the Dallas Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from a motel in Dallas.  

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

A short while later, officers from the Dallas Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Cadillac on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the stolen Cadillac to an apartment complex, where they found it abandoned in the parking lot.  This vehicle was also equipped with a GPS system, but it was the LoJack transponder that led to the quick recovery of this vehicle.

This stolen Cadillac was recovered with no damage. 

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2007 Cadillac Escalade in March of 2006 at Massey Cadillac.
