The owner of a 2002 International 4300 DS Illinois State Police (ISP) to report their work truck stolen. The owners told police they were working on the Illinois Tollway at 159th and N/B 294 when they noticed their truck missing. The worker stated he left the keys in the van. ISP verified the theft and entered the International Trucks information into state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the International.
Shortly after the International was entered as stolen, an officer from the Country Club Hills Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the International 4300 with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol cars and aircraft.
Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officer tracked the vehicle to a frontage road off I57 and Pulaski Road in Markham. The truck was recovered unoccupied and undamaged and turned over to the owner on scene.
The LoJack® System was installed in the International 4300 in September 2002 as a Commercial Sale.
