This Dodge Charger was stolen sometime during a two day period. The Dodge was parked on the street in the 6200 block of South Puget Sound Avenue in Tacoma. When the theft was discovered it was immediately reported to the Tacoma Police Department. The Tacoma PD verified the report and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Dodge.


Just twelve minutes later, the Washington State Patrol troopers picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Dodge on the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in their patrol cars. Following directional and audible cues from the PTC, they tracked the Dodge to the 2000 block of Fairbanks Street in Puyallup. The car was abandoned. The only damage was a missing stereo system.

The LoJack® System was installed in this Dodge Charger in October 2009 at West Hills Chrysler Dodge Jeep in Bremerton, Washington.
