The owner of a 2000 Lincoln Navigator parked their SUV in front of their home during the early hours of Mother’s Day. When they came out of the house to use their Lincoln, they discovered their SUV missing. They contacted the Miami Gardens Police Department to report their vehicle 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.
Within minutes of activation, an Auto Theft Task Force investigator picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Navigator on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The investigator began tracking the stolen Lincoln by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The investigator, along with their backup, the Hollywood Police Department, located the sport utility vehicle abandoned in good condition behind a closed attorney’s office in the 5900 block of Taft Street. The SUV was recovered by the Hollywood PD, 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 2000 Lincoln Navigator in January 2000 at Fort Lauderdale Lincoln Mercury in Florida.
