The owner of a 2014 Cadillac Escalade contacted the Grapevine Police Department to report that her vehicle was stolen. The owner parked her Cadillac in her driveway and when she returned to it the following morning, found it missing.

The Grapevine 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 Cadillac.

Later, an officer from the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Cadillac with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that is installed in his patrol vehicle.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the stolen Cadillac to an apartment complex in Greenville, Texas, and found it parked in the parking lot.  The license plates belonging to this Cadillac had been removed and replaced with license plates from Mexico.  The Vehicle Identification Number plate was covered with a piece of paper.  This Cadillac was recovered in good condition.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Cadillac Escalade in November 2013 at Sewell Village Cadillac in Dallas, Texas.
