The owner of a 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer sport utility vehicle awoke one morning and found their SUV missing. They contacted the Miami-Dade Police Department to report their Chevrolet stolen. The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers.
Later that morning, while on routine patrol, a Broward County Sheriff’s Office deputy picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Trailblazer on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The deputy began tracking the stolen Trailblazer by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The deputy, along with their backup, located the sport utility vehicle abandoned in an alleyway near S.W. 43rd Terrace and S.W. 52nd Street. The SUV was recovered, 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 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer in February 2012 at AutoNation Chevrolet in Doral, Florida.
