In this case, three different branches of law enforcement in Washington State team up with the LoJack® system to retrieve a stolen 2009 Ford Expedition taken by a relative of the owner in only 34 minutes after activation.
On June 20th, 2013, the Ford’s owner called the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department when he discovered a relative had stolen the vehicle earlier that day. PCSD verified the theft and entered the vehicle identification number into the state and federal crime computers. That process automatically activated the LoJack device concealed in the Ford, which was installed at Titus-Will Ford in Tacoma, WA.
A short while later, Lakewood PD officers, Pierce County deputies and detectives with the ACE (Auto Crimes Enforcement) Task Force received the homing signal transmitting from the stolen SUV on the LoJack tracking computers installed in their patrol vehicles. The Ford was found parked and unoccupied in a grocery store parking lot in Spanaway. The undamaged Expedition was soon returned to its happy owner.
