The owner of a 2001 Dodge Ram pickup contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from his place of employment.
The Phoenix PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Dodge.
Five minutes later, officers from the Phoenix PD and the Glendale Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Dodge with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Dodge to a neighborhood in the 6300 block of west Oregon Avenue, in Glendale.
The Glendale PD officers located the Dodge occupied and detained the female driver without incident. The Phoenix PD officers responded to the scene and arrested the female suspect for the theft of the Dodge. The Dodge was recovered in good condition and released to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Dodge Ram in January 2003 at Darner Chrysler Plymouth in Mesa, Arizona.
