On a recent Thursday, the owners of a Dodge Durango discovered their SUV missing from their home in Belton, SC. Thanks to the LoJack® system that was installed when the vehicle was purchased, local law enforcement recovered it, undamaged, later that same day.

On March 24th, 2014, the Dodge’s owner contacted the Belton Police Department. Officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. The LoJack transponder concealed in the Durango, which was installed at Honda Cars of Rock Hill, SC, was then automatically activated.

A short while later, deputies from the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department picked up the homing signals from the stolen SUV on the LoJack tracking computers installed in their patrol vehicles. The deputies located the Dodge as it pulled into a gas station and initiated a traffic stop. The driver was taken into custody and a second suspect was soon apprehended at a local motel. The undamaged Durango was soon returned to its thankful owner.
