The owners of a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado called Knoxville Police to report that their vehicle had been stolen. Knoxville Police verified the theft and had the vehicle information entered into the state and federal crime computers.  This routine action automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the 2004 Chevy Silverado.

Later the LoJack Towers in Georgia picked up the silent signal from the stolen Chevrolet Silverado as being in the Atlanta area. A short time later an Officer from Georgia’s Department Motor Vehicle Safety unit picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Chevy with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from their PTC, the Officer tracked the Chevrolet to a residence in Palmetto, GA just south of Atlanta.

The vehicle was located in the backyard of the residence sitting on top of a Flatbed wrecker. Other units from Palmetto Police arrived to assist in the investigation. The Silverado was identified as the stolen vehicle from Knoxville, Tn. The Wrecker was also identified as stolen from Knoxville. After on scene investigation two persons were taken into custody and charged with the stolen vehicles at the residence. This is again an example of the LoJack working across State lines to get recovered. Not only did the LoJack signal led to the recovery of the vehicle it was installed in but it helped recover another stolen vehicle in the process.  

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevy in Feb 2005 at CarMax in Marietta, Georgia.
