The owner of a 2016 Land Rover contacted the Montville Police Department to report that sometime during the night someone took their vehicle from their driveway in Montville. The owner said that the keys were left in the Land Rover.
The Montville 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 Land Rover.
A short while later, detectives from the New Jersey State Police picked up the silent LoJack signal coming from the stolen Land Rover with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the detectives tracked the Land Rover to a side street off the Garden State Parkway in East Orange, New Jersey, where the vehicle was found parked. Surveillance was established and the detectives followed the stolen Land Rover. The suspects took the Land Rover to a used car dealership in Maryland. The Land Rover was recovered and the suspects were taken into custody.
Along with the Land Rover, two other stolen vehicles were recovered at the used car dealership, a 2016 Audi A6 reported stolen out of Whitpain, Pennsylvania, and a 2013 BMW 650 stolen from a BMW dealership in Bloomfield, New Jersey.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2016 Land Rover in October 2015 at Land Rover of Parsippany in New Jersey.
