The owners of a 2014 Melrose Skid Steer reported to Memphis Police their Skid Steer stolen from a construction site. Once Memphis Police verified the theft, they entered the vehicle’s information into state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the hidden LoJack in the Melroe.
The same day Tennessee Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Melroe Skid Steer with the LoJack Tracking Computers (PTC’s) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from their PTC’s they were able to locate, the Skid Steer parked at a Gas Station outside the City Limits of Memphis.
Memphis Police Department and Shelby County Sheriff Department took over the
investigation and made the recovery. The unit was recovered within hours of
being entered as stolen in the National Crime Computers.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Skid Steer in June 2016 as a commercial installation in Memphis.
