On December 19, 2012, the owner of a 2006 Lincoln MKL Pickup contacted the Midwest City Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen from a car dealership in the 6000 block of Tinker Diagonal, in Midwest City.

The Midwest City Police Department verified the theft and entered the Lincoln’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the pickup.

A short while later, a deputy with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department picked up the silent homing signal from the stolen Lincoln with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in his patrol vehicle. The LoJack PTC provides officers with on-board information that enables them to track and locate the stolen vehicle quickly.

Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack PTC, the deputy was able to quickly locate the stolen Lincoln in the 2800 block of South I-35, in Oklahoma City. The vehicle, valued at $15,000, was found parked at an apartment complex. Two individuals were taken into custody at this location and arrested for auto theft, drug possession and outstanding warrants.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Lincoln on March 2, 2006 at Santa Monica Lincoln Mercury in California.
