On the afternoon of February 22, 2013, the owner of a 2010 Land Rover LR-4 contacted the Atlanta Police Department to report the vehicle stolen from the area shopping mall. Atlanta 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 SUV.

Minutes later, a Dekalb County Police helicopter unit, equipped with an onboard LoJack tracking computer, began receiving a LoJack signal coming from the stolen SUV. Following the directional and signal strength cues on the LoJack computer, the officers tracked the signal into Gwinnett County. There, a Gwinnett County Police Department officer also picked up the signal and began tracking it on his LoJack computers. They quickly located the stolen Land Rover in the driveway of a home, with one suspect inside. The officer called a detective to the home for further investigation. The Land Rover was returned to the owner in excellent condition.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed at Hennessy Land Rover in Buckhead, Georgia on January 20, 2010.
