The owner of a 2009 Dodge Challenger 2-door coupe contacted the Miami Lakes Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen sometime during the night. The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers.

Immediately upon activation, a Hialeah Gardens Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Challenger on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC).  The officer began tracking the stolen Challenger by following the directional and audible cues on their PTC screen. The officer, along with their backup, located the Challenger in the 8700 block of N.W. 117th Street. The 2009 Dodge Challenger 2-door coupe was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping, and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2009 Dodge Challenger in May 2009 at Tamiami Chrysler Plymouth in Miami, Florida.
