The owner of a 2015 BMW 428 contacted the Gwinnett County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home during the night when he went out to go to work.
The Gwinnett County 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 BMW.
A short while later officers from the Gwinnett PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen BMW 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 BMW to a street in the rural area of the county where it was located with no one around. A detective was called to the scene for processing and possible arrest.
The LoJack® System was installed in the BMW 428 in December 2015 at United BMW Gwinnett in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
