Imagine how the victims in this case felt- they dropped their Audi Q7 off at a dealership in North Carolina for repairs, and not only did it not get fixed, but it was stolen off the lot! The LoJack® system that was installed when the car was purchased came to the rescue, assisting local police in recovering the vehicle later that same day.
On April 16th, 2014, the Audi’s owner contacted the Winston Salem Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. Officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. The LoJack transponder concealed in the Q7, which was installed at Inskip Audi in Warwick, RI, was then automatically activated.
Later in the day, officers from the Piedmont Triad International Airport Police Department received the silent homing signal from the stolen car on the LoJack tracking computers installed in their patrol vehicles. The Audi was located on the incline ramp to the top floor of the parking deck, parked and abandoned. The undamaged Q7 was retrieved and soon returned to its relieved owner.
