The owners of a 2009 GMC Sierra pickup contacted the Harris County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their residential driveway.
The Harris County SD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the GMC.
A short while later officers from the Houston Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen GMC 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 GMC to the 2500 block of Firnat. The GMC was parked behind a mobile home that was empty and a for rent sign on the door. Officers confirmed the stolen GMC with Harris County SD. The owner was contacted and requested the GMC be towed to their residence. The GMC sustained entry and ignition damage.
The LoJack® System was installed in the GMC Sierra pickup in December 2008 at Beck and Masten – South in Houston, Texas.
