On Wednesday morning, February 27, 2013, some Florida homeowners got a terrible shock when their home was invaded and robbed by four masked subjects with guns. Although the residents of the home were not harmed, the intruders robbed their residence and stole their 2010 Ford F150 truck as well as another vehicle. The victims immediately contacted the Miami-Dade Police Department to report the robbery and vehicle theft. When the stolen vehicles’ information was entered into the police computer, the LoJack® unit installed in the pickup truck immediately began sending a signal that the police could track using the LoJack tracking computers installed in their vehicles. The LoJack system was installed in the vehicle when it was purchase from Champion Ford in Houston, Texas.
A short while later, Miami-Dade officers picked up the homing signal from the stolen F-150 pickup and found the truck occupied by four people. A chase ensued and the vehicle was finally abandoned, but two of the four suspects were apprehended. The F150 was returned to its owners, which hopefully provided a little good news for them on an obviously tough day.
