This Ford Explorer Sport Track was stolen as part of a residential burglary located in the 4200 block of Albert Court in Lake Oswego. When the theft was discovered it was reported to the Lake Oswego Police Department who verified the report and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Ford.

Just thirteen minutes later, a Portland Police Bureau officer picked up the silent LoJack signal transmitting from the Ford with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officer tracked the Ford to SE 8th & SE Bush Streets in Portland where it was located abandoned and undamaged.

The LoJack® System was installed in this Ford Explorer in December 2007 at Landmark Ford in Tigard, Oregon.
