The owner of a 2009 Cadillac DTS contacted the Henrico County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 8500 Ashfield Hill Terrace in Henrico, Virginia. Henrico County Sheriff’s Radio dispatched a deputy to investigate the incident. The deputy quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the subject vehicle. When the deputy was unable to locate the vehicle, a stolen vehicle report was prepared. The deputy then arranged for the stolen vehicle information to be entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the 2009 Cadillac DTS.

Within minutes, deputies from the Henrico County Sheriff’s Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2009 Cadillac DTS with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the deputies tracked the vehicle to 8300 Cordova Drive in Henrico, Virginia. At this location, deputies observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. The undamaged vehicle was recovered and the owner notified.

Approximate value of vehicle: $6,400.00

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2009 Cadillac DTS in November, 2008 at Lindsay Cadillac Company in Alexandria, Virginia.
