On January 27, 2013, the owner of a 2005 Dodge Durango contacted the Holly Hills Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the parking lot of his place of business in Holly Hills.

Holly Hills 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 Dodge.

A short while later, deputies from the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Dodge on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the deputies tracked the vehicle to a shopping center in Daytona Beach. The vehicle had sustained only ignition damage and was processed for evidence before being returned to the owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Dodge Durango in February of 2006 at Enterprise Auto Sales in Orlando, Florida.
