The owners of a 2008 Jeep Wrangler contacted the Worcester Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The Worcester 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 Jeep.

Minutes later officers from the Worcester Police Department 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 directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to a residential location in Worcester and recovered the vehicle within eight (8) minutes of the initial broadcast.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Jeep Wrangler in January of 2008  at Herb Chambers Dodge located in Danvers, MA.
