This Ford F150 was stolen during a residential burglary that occurred during the early morning hours at the owner’s residence located in the 14900 block of Old Manor Way near Lynnwood. When the theft was discovered it was reported to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. They verified the report and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Ford.
Just twenty minutes later, a Washington State Patrol Cessna, flying over the Lynnwood area, received the silent LoJack signal from the stolen pickup on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. A Snohomish County SO deputy also received the signal about the same time. Following directional and audible cues he located the truck on Old Manor Way, a few blocks from where it was stolen. The Ford was abandoned and apparently not damaged.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F150 in July 2016 at Marysville Ford in Washington.
