On January 31, 2013, the owner of a 2007 BMW 335I contacted the Fort Worth Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from his business parking lot in Fort Worth.  

 The Fort Worth Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the BMW.

A short time later, officers from the Dallas Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen BMW 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 an above-ground parking garage in downtown Dallas. Officers were able to continue to track this stolen BMW and found it parked on the sixth floor.  The parking garage security told officers that they have video of the suspect driving this stolen BMW into the garage.  This remains an ongoing investigation. 

This stolen BMW, valued at $27,975, was recovered with no damage.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2007 BMW in January of 2007 at BMW of San Diego.
