The owners of a 2011 Ford F350 discovered that their truck was stolen from a construction site in Antioch.
The California Highway Patrol-Contra Costa verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Ford truck.
Hours later, CHP Auto Theft Task Force officers picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen truck with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to the Marina area of Antioch, where the stolen truck was found abandoned.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2011 Ford F350 in October 2014.
