The owner of a 2014 Ford Fusion contacted the Dallas Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen.  The owner parked his vehicle in an apartment parking lot and left his keys in the ignition.  When he returned to it he found it missing. The Dallas 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 Ford.

A short while later officers from the Dallas Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford 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 vehicle to the 3600 block of Reese St, where they observed it parked on the street.  Officers set up surveillance and a short while later observed two suspects get into the stolen Ford.  When officers pulled behind the stolen Ford, the two suspects jumped out of it and fled on foot. They were both apprehended and arrested.  The Ford was recovered in good condition. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford Fusion in January 2019 at Leif Johnson Superstore North in Austin, TX.
