The owner of a 2002 Cadillac Escalade contacted the Dallas Police Dept to report that her vehicle had been stolen. The owner was visiting a friend at a hospital and when she went to leave found her car keys missing from her purse. When she went out to the parking lot, she found her vehicle missing.
The Dallas 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 Cadillac.
A short while later officers from the Garland Police Dept picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Cadillac 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 officers tracked the stolen Cadillac to the 8200 block of Mars Rd where they observed it traveling eastbound. The officers were able to stop the stolen Cadillac and arrest the driver. The Cadillac was recovered in good condition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Cadillac in September of 2003 at Crest Auto Group in Plano, TX.
