The owners of a
2002 Ingersoll-Rand Skid Steer T-190 contacted
the Prince George’s County Police Department to
report that their skid steer was stolen from a construction site on 6300 Walker
Mill Road in the Capitol Heights area of Prince George’s County, Maryland. Officers were dispatched to the location and
upon arrival made contact with the owner, obtained the information on the skid
steer and searched the area without success for the unit. Prince
George’s County Police verified the theft and entered
the skid steer information into the state and federal crime computers, which
automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the 2002
Ingersoll-Rand Skid Steer T-190.

Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the detectives tracked the skid steer to the area of 4100 Belt Road in the Capitol Heights area of Prince George’s County, Maryland. At that location, detectives observed the 2002 Ingersoll-Rand Skid Steer T-190 on a lot at the location. Detectives obtained a search warrant for the location. Detectives recovered the stolen 2002 Ingersoll-Rand Skid Steer T-190 and notified the owner. Investigation to continue.
