The owner of a 2007 BMW 335i discovered their car missing. They contacted the Pembroke Pines Police Department to report their BMW stolen. The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers which automatically activates the LoJack® System concealed in the BMW.
The next morning an Auto Theft Task Force investigator picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 335i on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) that are installed in law enforcement patrol vehicles and aircraft. The investigator began tracking the stolen BMW by following the directional and audible cues on their PTC screen. The investigator, along with their backup from the Miramar Police Department located the 4-door sedan parked abandoned in the parking lot of an apartment complex just southwest of Miramar Parkway and Douglas Road, Miramar. The BMW was recovered, removed from state and federal crime information computer systems by the entering agency and towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2007 BMW 335i in February 2007 at Braman BMW in West Palm Beach, Florida.
