The owner of a 2017 Chevrolet pickup contacted the Houston Police Dept to report that his vehicle had been stolen.  The owner parked his vehicle in his front driveway and when he returned to it found it missing. The Houston 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 Chevrolet pickup.

A short while later officers from the Houston Police Dept picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet pickup 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 Chevrolet pickup to an apartment complex where they found it abandoned in the parking lot.  Parked next to it was a stolen 2018 GMC pickup.   Officers are reviewing the apartment’s parking lot video to see if suspects can be identified. Both vehicles were recovered in good condition.  The 2018 GMC pickup is valued at $27,000.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet pickup in July of 2017 at Classic Chevrolet in Sugarland, TX.
