The owners of a 2015 Jeep Wrangler contacted the Manor Police Dept to report that their vehicle had been stolen. A dealership had parked this vehicle on their parking lot and when they returned to it found it missing.

The Manor Police Dept verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Jeep.

A short while later troopers from Texas DPS picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Jeep with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the troopers tracked the stolen Jeep to the 1200 block of Broadmoor, where they found it parked in an apartment complex.  The Jeep was recovered in good condition.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Jeep Wrangler in July of 2018 at Riata Ford in Manor, TX.
