The owner of a 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis 4-door sedan discovered their vehicle missing from their home as the result of a burglary to the house. The owner contacted the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office to report their vehicle stolen. The responding deputy prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers.
Later that evening, a Palm Beach County SO deputy picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Grand Marquis on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The deputy began tracking the stolen Grand Marquis by following the directional and audible cues on their PTC screen. The deputy, along with their backup, located the Grand Marquis abandoned in the 2400 block of Second Avenue North, Lake Worth. The Grand Marquis was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping, and removed from federal and state crime computer systems.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis in February 2007 at Delray Motors Inc., in Delray Beach, Florida.
