The owner of a Land Rover contacted the Alsip Police Department to report their Land Rover LR3 stolen from in front of their residence on the 5900 block of W. 124th street. Alsip police arrived on scene verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Land Rover LR3.

A short while later a Dolton squad vehicle equipped with a LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft picked up the silent LoJack signal from the Land Rover. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the Land Rover was located in a parking lot of a apartment complex on the 14700 block of South Wabash Ave. in Dolton. Police established a surveillance of the Land Rover. When no one returned to it, Dolton Police recovered the stolen Land Rover and towed it for evidence processing and safekeeping.

Police recovered the Land Rover undamaged and returned to a grateful owner

The LoJack® System was installed in the Land Rover in December 2006, at Luxury Motors, Franklin Park, Illinois.
