On December 20, 2012, the owner of a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe contacted the Dallas Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from his driveway in Dallas, Texas.

The Dallas Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Chevolet Tahoe.

A short while later, officers from the Dallas Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Tahoe on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle to a house in the 2600 block of Bonnieview Road.  The officers were able to determine that the stolen Tahoe was inside the garage.  Officers made contact with the owner of the house, who refused to give officers permission to search his garage.  Officers executed a search warrant, and found the stolen Tahoe in the garage.  The owner of the house was arrested.   

The stolen Cadillac was recovered with damage to the ignition.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe in October of 2004 at El Dorado Motors in McKinney, Texas.
