The owners of a 2016 BMW 428I reported to Atlanta Police their vehicle stolen. Atlanta 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 2016 BMW.

Within Minutes of the entry, units from the Atlanta Police picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen BMW with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from their PTC, the Officers tracked the vehicle saw it operated by two individuals. The Officers coordinated with other patrol units and were able to pick their opportunity to box in the vehicle when it stopped. They arrested two individuals in the vehicle and recovered property that was from other vehicles burglarized that evening. The subjects are facing multiple charges.

Immediately after the BMW theft, the offenders used it in several other crimes. The LoJack installed in the vehicle helped Atlanta Police recover it quickly and arrest two individuals. Without the LoJack® system installed in the BMW, the suspects could have continued their crime spree throughout the city of Atlanta. The LoJack® System was installed at Braman BMW in February 2016, at Braman BMW Miami, FL.
