The owner of a 2007 Dodge Charger contacted the Houston Police Department, Texas, to report their vehicle was stolen. The Houston 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 Dodge Charger.
Shortly after the activation, and nearly 500 miles away, officers with the Broken Arrow Police Department, Oklahoma, picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Dodge with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. The officer just cleared briefing and started his routine patrol duties when he picked up the LoJack signal. Following the silent and directional cues from the PTC, the Dodge was tracked to a transmission shop.
The officer made contact with the shop owner and verified the stolen status of the Dodge. The shop owner advised he just purchased the Dodge from an internet site. The Dodge was recovered and towed from the scene to be reunited with the owner at a later date.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Dodge Charger in January 2007 at Dadeland Dodge in Miami, Florida
