The owners of a 2008 Kenworth T-800 tractor contacted the Miramar Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen during the night. The Miramar Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Kenworth.
Later that night officers from the Hialeah Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Kenworth with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Officers from the Miami-Dade Police Department also picked up the LoJack signal. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Kenworth to 12700 block of N.W. 32nd Avenue, in Opa Locka.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Kenworth T-800 tractor in August 2007 at Kenworth of Central Florida-Orlando, Orlando, Florida.
