On October 5, 2012, the owner of a 2008 Ford F350 flatbed truck contacted The Colony Police Department in Texas to report that someone had rented this vehicle and never returned it.   

The Colony Police Department 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 truck.

A short while later, officers from the Goodlettsville Police Department in Tennessee picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Ford F350 on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked this stolen vehicle and observed a suspect driving it into a motel.  The officers stopped the stolen truck and arrested the driver. The driver is a known felon with a history of stealing cars. 

This stolen Ford F350 was recovered with no damage.     

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Ford F350 flatbed in February of 2008 at Home Depot.
