The owner of a 2013 Chevrolet Cruz called the Indianapolis Police Department to report her vehicle was stolen by a male acquaintance. The Indianapolis 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 Cruz.
Less than an hour after the Cruz was entered as stolen by the Indianapolis PD, a Chicago Police Department Squad from the Ogden District equipped with LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) picked up the silent and directional signal being broadcast from the stolen Cruz. The Chicago PD unit following the signal tracked the stolen Chevrolet to the 1400 block of South Saint Louis Avenue in Chicago’s North Lawndale neighborhood where the vehicle was recovered parked and unoccupied. The Chicago PD recovered the Chevrolet and towed it for further investigation.
Due to LoJack the owner of this Chevrolet Cruz had her vehicle recovered shortly after it was entered as stolen. The Chevrolet was recovered before it could be damaged, stripped, cloned, re-tagged or used in a crime.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2013 Chevrolet Cruz in February 2015 at Herb Chambers Chevrolet in Danvers, Massachusetts.
