The owner of a GMC Yukon contacted the Tulsa Police Department to report the GMC Yukon was stolen from the 2700 block of E. 28th St. N. a residence in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The Tulsa PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activates the LoJack® System concealed in the stolen GMC.

A short while later, officers with the Tulsa PD’s Gilcrease Division picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen GMC with the LoJack Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in patrol cars and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC the officers were able to quickly track the signal to the 1000 block of N. Wheeling in Tulsa.

The officers found the stolen GMC to be unoccupied and wrecked. Indications were that the driver of the stolen GMC lost control and crashed. The owner was notified of the recovery and will be reunited with his GMC.

The LoJack® System was installed in this GMC Yukon in July 2005 at Sewell Village Cadillac in Dallas, Texas.
