The owner of a 2016 Land Rover contacted the Rumson Police Department to report that sometime during the night someone took their vehicle from their driveway in Rumson. The owner said that the keys were left in the Land Rover.
The Rumson 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 warehouse where they attempted to load the vehicle into a sealand container to ship the vehicle out of the country. The Land Rover was recovered and the suspects were taken into custody.
Along with the Land Rover, a 2015 Audi Q7 reported stolen out of Livingston, New Jersey, was also recovered in the sealand container.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2016 Land Rover in December 2015 at Prestige Land Rover in Paramus, New Jersey.
