The owner of a GMC Sierra pickup contacted the Oklahoma City Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen from a local business parking lot after the owner of the GMC left the keys in the car.

The Oklahoma City PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activates the LoJack® System concealed in the GMC.

A short while later a pilot with the Oklahoma City PD Air Support Unit picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen GMC with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in patrol cars and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC the pilot and observer successfully tracked and located the stolen GMC to the area of S W and May Ave. in Oklahoma City.  The pilot requested Oklahoma City PD ground units to assist in the stopping of the moving GMC. A felony stop was initiated which resulted in the arrest of two subjects and the recovery of a .38 caliber handgun.  The GMC returned to a grateful owner.

The LoJack® Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this GMC in December 1997 at Ewing Buick Pontiac GMC in Plano, Texas.
