The owners of a 2011 Ford F-150 Truck contacted the Fairfax Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home in the 9500 block Hagel Circle in Lorton, Virginia.

The Fairfax PD 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 F-150. A short while later officers from the Fairfax PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford F-150 with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Ford to the intersection of Groom Cottage Drive and Gunston Hill Lane in Fairfax, Virginia. At that location, officers observed the Ford parked and unoccupied. Officers recovered the undamaged Ford and notified the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2011 Ford F-150 during August 2014 at Mercedes Benz of Tysons Corner in Vienna, Virginia.
