owner of a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro contacted the Broward Sheriff’s Office to
report that their vehicle had been stolen.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office 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 Chevrolet.
Thirty three minutes later deputies from the Broward Sheriff’s Office picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from their PTCs, deputies tracked the Chevrolet to the 300 block of NE 22nd Street in Pompano, Florida.
After crime scene processing the Chevrolet was taken to a local storage facility and then returned to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Camaro in July 2009 at Bill O’Reilly Chevrolet in Tucson, Arizona.
