The renter of a 2017 Kubota skid steer contacted the Dallas Police Department to report that the skid steer had been stolen. The renter left the skid steer overnight at a job site and when they returned they found it missing.  The Dallas 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 Kubota.

A short while later officers from the Dallas Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Kubota 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 Kubota to the 2200 block of E Ledbetter, where they found it abandoned behind a grocery store.  The Kubota was recovered in good condition. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Kubota skid steer in February 2018.
