The owner of a 2014 Jeep Wrangler contacted the Austin Police Department to report her vehicle stolen.  The owner had left her vehicle in a parking garage overnight; and when she returned to it found it missing. The Austin 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.

A short while later officers from the Austin 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 stolen Jeep to the parking garage that the owner said it was stolen from.  The owner thought she had parked it on the orange level and it was found on the red level.  The Jeep was returned to the owner in good condition. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Jeep Wrangler in June 2016 at Leif Johnson Ford in Austin, TX.
