The owner of a 2004 Ford Taurus awoke to discover that his vehicle had been stolen from in front of his residence in Brookhaven, Pennsylvania. The Ford owner called 911 and the Delaware County Police Radio dispatched a uniformed Chester Township Police Department officer to investigate the incident. The Chester Township 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 Honda.
Minutes later a uniformed officer from the Chester Township PD in a marked police vehicle picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford 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 officer tracked the signal to the area of Lewis Street in Chester, Pennsylvania. The officer observed the parked Ford and notified police radio of the situation. The officer cautiously approached the Ford and determined that same was unoccupied. The Chester Township PD officer made the proper notifications and the Ford was confiscated for safekeeping.
This incident remains under investigation by the members of the Chester Township Police Department.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford Taurus in July 2005 at Enterprise Auto Sales in Pennsauken, New Jersey.
