The owner of a 2007 Ford Mustang contacted the Grand Prairie Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen. The owner invited several people to his house for a party. When the party was over, the owner was missing $4,000 in cash and his vehicle.
The Grand Prairie 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 Ford.
Later, officers from the Lewisville Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford 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 Ford to a motel off of Interstate 35E, where they found it abandoned in the parking lot. The keys and the $4,000 are still missing. This is an on-going investigation.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford Ranger in June 2007 at Serramonte Ford in Colma, California.
