The owner of a 2017 Ford pickup contacted the Fort Worth Police Dept to report that his vehicle had been stolen. The owner parked his Ford pickup in front of his house and when he returned to it found it missing.  The owner had left his key fob in the center console.  The Fort Worth 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 Ford pickup.

A short while later officers from the Fort Worth Police Dept picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford 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 Ford pickup to the 3300 block of Halloran where they found it abandoned on the side of the road.  The Ford pickup was recovered in good condition.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford pickup in December of 2017 Auto Nation Ford in Frisco, TX.
