The owners of a 2017 Melrose Skid Steer reported to East Point Police that their Skid Steer had been stolen off a construction site. Once East Point Police verified the theft they entered the vehicle’s information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the hidden LoJack system concealed in the Melrose Skid Steer.
The same day as it was entered an Officer with Atlanta Police picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Melrose Skid Steer with the LoJack Tracking Computers (PTC’s) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from their PTC’s the officers were able to locate the Skid Steer on the side of a residential street abandoned. The Skid Steer Tractor was verified as stolen and impounded to be returned to the rightful owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Skid Steer in March 2017 at a commercial establishment.
