The owners of a 2017 Jeep Cherokee contacted the Methuen Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The Methuen 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.
A short while later officers from the Salem, NH 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 address in Salem, NH and recovered the unoccupied stolen vehicle.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Jeep Cherokee in September of 2016 at Harr Chrysler Jeep Dodge located in Worcester, MA.
