On a recent Monday in Burien, WA, the owner of a Ford Expedition started her SUV and left it running to warm up while she went back inside her residence. When she was ready to go, she returned to her driveway and discovered her vehicle had already left, thanks to a thief. She was grateful that the LoJack® system had been installed in the Expedition at purchase. With LoJack’s assistance, it took less than a half hour for local law enforcement to retrieve the SUV.
The Ford’s owner reported the incident to the King County Sheriff’s Office on June 9th, 2014. Deputies verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. This action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Expedition, which was installed at Bruce Titus Olympia Chrysler Jeep in Olympia, WA.
Within ten minutes of the LoJack activation, a Seattle PD officer received the silent homing signals from the stolen SUV on the LoJack tracking Computer installed in his patrol vehicle. The Ford was located parked and abandoned near the intersection of 17th Avenue SW and SW Barton Street. Police retrieved the undamaged Expedition and soon returned it to its elated owner.
