The owner of a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee contacted the Oklahoma City Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen.  The owner advised they possibly left the keys inside of the Jeep.  The Oklahoma City 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Shortly after the activation, officers with the Oklahoma City PD 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 silent and directional cues from the PTC, the Jeep was tracked to the area of SW 59th Street and S Pennsylvania Avenue.  Officers observed the Jeep in a parking lot occupied.  Contact was made with the stolen Jeep and a male subject was taken into custody.  The Jeep was recovered and will be released back to the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Jeep Grand Cherokee in August 2010 at Bob Howard Chrysler Dodge Jeep in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
