On Tuesday, October 23, 2012, the owner of a 2007 Ford Focus contacted the Philadelphia Police Department to report that the vehicle was stolen from the area of 2000 W. Indiana Avenue.
Philadelphia Police verified the theft and had the Ford’s information entered into the state and federal crime computer systems, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.
Later on the same day, officers from the Hatfield Police Department became aware that a LoJack signal was being broadcast from a location in the area of Union and Maple Avenues in Hatfield Township. Subsequent investigation revealed that the vehicle was located within a storage facility at that location. Philadelphia Police were advised and the stolen vehicle alarm was canceled. The investigation into this incident continues at this time.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2007 Ford Focus on March 16, 2007 at Westway Ford in Irving, Texas.
