The owner of a 2006 Ford Mustang contacted the Dallas Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen.  The owner parked his vehicle at a fast food restaurant leaving his keys in the ignition.  When he returned his vehicle was 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 stolen Ford to a house and observed it parked in the driveway.    When officers approached the house, two suspects attempted to jump out the back window, but when they saw the officers they ducked back inside.  Officers gained entry into the house and found the two suspects hiding under a bed.  They were both arrested.  Both suspect admitted stealing this vehicle.  The Ford was recovered in good condition.   

The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford Mustang in September 2006 at Mahwah Ford in Mahwah, NJ.
