When the silent LoJack® registered an activation alert, Officers began to search for the vehicle. Officers in Southern Miami Dade County equipped with LoJack® tracking computers responded and located the vehicle.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2001 Ford F-350 at Precision Contracting Services in Jupiter, Florida.
