The owners of a 2012 Terex Light Tower contacted the Los Angeles Police department to report that their equipment was stolen from a job site.
The LAPD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Terex.
The LAPD Devonshire patrol officers picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Terex 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 stolen trailer was tracked to the area of Nordhoff Ave and Reseda Blvd. The trailer was located and officers were able to locate the light tower a short distance away on Parthena Street. The recovered Terex light tower and trailer were returned to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Terex in August 2013 via Commercial Sales in Lompoc, California.
