owner of a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee contacted the Phoenix Police Department to
report that their vehicle was stolen with the keys. The owner was outside the vehicle when the
suspect jumped in and sped off. The Phoenix
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 Jeep.
Four minutes later officers from the Phoenix Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Jeep 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 vehicle to the area of 25th Avenue and Vista Avenue, approximately one and a half miles from the theft location.
Phoenix Police Department officers
located the stolen Jeep in the parking lot of an apartment complex. An investigative lead was contacted,
interviewed, and released pending further investigation. The Jeep was recovered in good condition and
processed for evidence. The Jeep was
released to the owner at the scene.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Jeep Grand Cherokee in September 2007, at AutoNation Chevrolet Arrowhead, Peoria, Arizona.
