The owners of a 2005 Freightliner Tractor called the Elizabeth Police Department to report that sometime during the night his vehicle was stolen from the parking lot of a hotel in Elizabeth.  The Elizabeth Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the 2005 Freightliner Tractor.

A short while later, officers from the East Rutherford Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal coming from the stolen Freightliner with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to Paterson Plank Road in the nearby community of North Bergen where the vehicle was located parked and unoccupied. The vehicle was recovered undamaged.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2005 Freightliner Tractor in June of 2005 at a Commercial Trucking Company in N.J.
