The owner of a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee called the Sayreville Police Department to report that sometime during the night someone stole his vehicle from his driveway in Sayreville. The Jeep was unlocked and the keys were in the vehicle.

The Sayreville 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

A short while later, officers from the Essex County Sheriff’s Department picked up the silent LoJack signal coming from the stolen Jeep with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC the officers tracked the Jeep to Stuyvesant Ave in the City of Irvington where the vehicle was recovered parked and undamaged.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee in April 2015 at Route 1 Jeep in Lawrence, New Jersey.
