On a recent Wednesday the owner of a Cadillac CTS was getting his hair cut at a barbershop in Kent, WA. At the same time, a young thief, known to the owners of the shop, took keys for the car from the owner’s jacket and drove off with the car. The LoJack® system that the owner had installed when purchasing the vehicle turned out to be a smart investment. With LoJack’s help, local police recovered the CTS in less than an hour after activation.
The theft was reported to the Kent Police Department on July 9th, 2014. Officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. This procedure automatically activated the LoJack device concealed in the CTS, which was installed at Brotherton Cadillac in Renton, WA.
Just thirty minutes later, a Washington State trooper received the silent homing signals from the stolen car on the LoJack tracking computer installed in his patrol vehicle. The Cadillac was located on 108th Place SE in Kent, where it was found parked and abandoned. Police retrieved the undamaged CTS and quickly returned it to its happy owner.
