When a North Carolina resident found out his Jeep Liberty had been stolen, he called local law enforcement right away to have them activate the LoJack® system hidden inside. With LoJack’s help, police were able to not only recover his vehicle but capture the suspected thief as well.

On November 11th, 2013, the Jeep’s owner contacted the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office to report the crime. Deputies verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. The LoJack device in the Liberty, which was installed at Enterprise Car Sales in Rockville, MD, was then automatically activated.

A short while later, inspectors from the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles License and Theft Bureau picked up the homing signals from the stolen SUV on the LoJack tracking computers installed in their patrol vehicles. The inspectors located the Jeep traveling on the highway. After a short pursuit, a traffic stop was performed. Two suspects attempted to flee but were soon taken into custody. The undamaged jeep was recovered and soon returned to its happy owner.
