On February 11, 2013, the owners of a 2002 Chrysler Town and Country van contacted the Columbia Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home in Columbia, South Carolina.

Columbia 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 van.

A short while later, officers from the Richland County Sheriff’s Office picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Chrysler 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 apartment complex in northern Columbia. The van was found intact and undamaged in the parking lot. No suspects were located. The investigation is continuing.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Chrysler on December 31, 2005 at Southwest Chrysler Dodge in Norco, California.
