The owner of a 1993 Kenworth T-800 dump truck discovered their truck missing when they went to the storage facility. They contacted the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office to report their vehicle stolen. The responding deputy prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers.
Immediately upon activation, while on routine patrol, a Miami-Dade Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Kenworth T-800 dump truck on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The officer began tracking the stolen dump truck by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The officer, along with their backup, located the dump truck abandoned near N.W. 74th Avenue and N.W. 70th Street. The truck was recovered with no apparent theft damage, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping, and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 1993 Kenworth T-800 dump truck in May 2005 in Miami, Florida.
