owner of a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado contacted the Broward Sheriff’s Office to
report that his vehicle had been stolen. Deputies from the Sheriff’s Office
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 Chevrolet.
A short while later members from the auto theft task force picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from their PTCs, the officers tracked the vehicle to the rear of a restaurant parking lot at the 600 block of West Sample Road. The Chevrolet was returned to the owner after crime scene processing.
The LoJack® system was installed in the Chevrolet Silverado in May of 2014 at Classic Chevrolet, in Sugarland, Texas.
