The owners of a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee contacted the Tucson Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from the parking lot of a medical center in Tucson.

The police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Jeep. A short while later, officers from the Tucson PD and detectives from the Arizona Vehicle Theft Task Force picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Jeep 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 and detectives tracked the Jeep to the area of 5th Street and north Alvernon Way.

The Jeep was located unoccupied in a business parking lot. The detectives from the Vehicle Theft Task Force conducted surveillance on the Jeep. No suspects were observed coming to the Jeep and was later recovered. The Jeep was returned to the owners at the scene in good condition. The LoJack® System was installed in the Jeep Grand Cherokee in September 2003 at Steve Christy Chrysler Jeep in Tucson, Arizona.
