owner of a 2014 Cadillac SRX contacted the Miramar Police Department to report
that their vehicle had been stolen. The
Miramar 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 Cadillac.
A short while later officers from the Miami Gardens Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Cadillac 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 a vacant field in the 100 block of NW 196th street.
The vehicle was recovered and returned to the owner after crime scene processing. The LoJack® System was installed in the Cadillac SRX in April 2014 at Ed Morse Chevy Sawgrass in Sunrise, Florida.
