On February 6, 2013 the owner of a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado contacted the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their residence sometime during the previous night.

The Montgomery County Sheriff 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 pickup.

A short while later, officers from the Houston Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Chevrolet pickup on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the to an apartment complex, where the pickup was parked and abandoned. Surveillance of the vehicle failed to locate any suspects, and the vehicle, valued at $15,500, was returned to the owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2007 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup on October 20, 2006 at Munday Chevrolet in Houston, Texas.
