The owner of a 2013 Mercedes Benz C-250 4-door sedan came out in the morning to use their car and discovered it missing. They contacted the Miami-Dade Police Department to report their Mercedes 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 in the day, while on routine patrol, a Miami-Dade Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen C-250 on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The officer began tracking the stolen Mercedes by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The officer, along with their backup the department’s aviation unit, located the 4-door sedan abandoned in an apartment in the 9800 block of S.W. 88th Street. The C-250 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 2013 Mercedes Benz C-250 in January 2016 at West Kendall Toyota in Florida.
