The owners of a 2007 Ford F150 contacted the New Orleans Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from in front of a residence he was working on in Gentilly. The owner stated that he had parked and walked inside to start working on the renovations when he heard his truck start up; as he walked outside he saw it being driven down the block. The owner informed police that he must have left the key inside the ignition and there was a LoJack® System installed on their Ford F150.
The New Orleans 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.
A short while later troopers from the Louisiana State Police picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford 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 tracked the Ford and found it parked on the city street in the St. Roch area of the city.
The owner was contacted by the troopers and advised them their Ford F150 had been recovered quickly in great shape via LoJack. The owners arrived and met the troopers a short while later and were reunited with their Ford F150 truck.
