This Ford F150 was stolen during the day from the 900 block of Pacific Avenue in Everett. The suspect in the theft was known by the owner but he took the Ford without permission. When the theft was discovered, it was reported to the Everett Police Department. They verified the ownership of the truck and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Ford.
Just ten minutes later, a Washington State trooper received the silent LoJack signal from the stolen truck on the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) that is installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the trooper located the Ford F150 behind a fast-food restaurant located at 128th Street and 5th Place in Everett. Two occupants in the truck were detained; one was arrested and booked into jail.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F150 in December 2016 at Marysville Ford in Washington.
