The owner of a 2006 Dodge pickup contacted the Tulsa Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen. The owner left his Dodge running in his driveway unattended. When he returned to the Dodge he found it missing.
The Tulsa 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 Dodge pickup.
Later, officers from the Tulsa PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Dodge pickup with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the stolen Dodge pickup to the downtown area and observed it traveling westbound. Officers were able to stop the stolen Dodge pickup and arrest the driver. The driver admitted that he stole this Dodge pickup. This Dodge was recovered in good condition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Dodge pickup in August 2006 at Grapevine Chrysler in Texas.
