The owner of a 2017 Land Rover Supercharged SWB contacted the New York City Police Department to report that during the night someone broke into his fenced in yard in Brooklyn and stole his vehicle. The keys were in the vehicle when it was stolen.  The New York City 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 2017 Land Rover.     

A short while later officers from the Newark Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Land Rover with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to an abandoned home on Aldine Street in the City of Newark, where the vehicle was located in the garage.  The vehicle was recovered undamaged.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2017 Land Rover Supercharged SWB in December 2017, at Jaguar Land Rover of Monmouth, N.J.
