The owner of a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu contacted the Houston PD to report that his vehicle had been stolen.  The owner parked his vehicle at a convenience store, leaving his car keys in the ignition.  When he returned it was missing. The Houston PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Chevrolet.

A short while later officers  from the Missouri City PD  picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen   Chevrolet 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 Chevrolet to the 500 block of Independence Blvd where they observed it traveling northbound.  When officers attempted to stop it, the driver and passenger jumped out and fled on foot.  The passenger was apprehended and arrested.  The driver was identified and a warrant is pending.  The Chevrolet was recovered in good condition. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Malibu in October 2013 at Ron Craft Chevrolet in Baytown, TX.
