The renters of a 2017 Kubota compact track loader contacted the Dallas Police Department to report that this Kubota had been stolen. The renters had left the Kubota on a job site overnight and when they returned found it 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 Kubota.
A short while later officers from the Dallas Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Kubota 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 Kubota to a vacant lot in the 2600 block of Gouch where they found it hidden behind some trees. The Kubota was recovered in good condition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Kubota loader in February of 2017 as a commercial sale.
