The owners of a 2012 GMC Arcadia contacted the Weston Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The Weston 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 GMC.

Four minutes later troopers from the Massachusetts State Police picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen GMC 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 troopers as well as officers from the Randolph Police Department and the Braintree Police Department tracked the vehicle to a shopping mall parking lot located in Braintree where the Braintree police found an individual in the vehicle.  An investigation revealed that the ex-husband of the owner had asked the individual found in possession of the vehicle to take the vehicle and deliver it to him in Braintree.   

No criminal charges were filed against the individual who was found in the vehicle but further investigation may lead to charges against the ex-husband of the owner of the GMC.

The LoJack® System was installed in the GMC Arcadia in January 2015 at Bourne Enterprises located in Bourne, MA.
