The owner of a 2017 Ford F150 pickup contacted the Dallas Police Department to report that her vehicle was stolen.  The owner parked her vehicle at a motel and was approached by three suspects who pointed a handgun at her and demanded her vehicle.  She gave them her keys and the suspects drove off with it.   

 The Dallas Police Department verified the carjacking and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Ford pickup.

A short while later officers from the Dallas Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford pickup 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 pickup to the 3100 block of Simpson Stuart where they found it parked on the street.  The Ford pickup was processed for fingerprints.  This is an ongoing investigation.  The Ford pickup was recovered in good condition. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F150 pickup in January of 2019 at Enterprise Car Sales in Plano, TX.
