The owners of a 2013 Melroe Bobcat Skid Steer contacted the Anaheim Police Department to report that their commercial equipment was stolen in the city of Anaheim.
The Anaheim 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 Melroe.
Within 17 minutes, officers from the Banning Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Melroe 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 Melroe to the rear yard of a residence located on the 1000 block of King Street and Lincoln Ave. in the city of Banning.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Melroe Bobcat in July 2013 at Bobcat in Lake City, Georgia.
