owner of a 2011 BMW 528i contacted the Lauderhill Police Department to report his
vehicle stolen. The Lauderhill Police verified
the theft and had the vehicle information
entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine action automatically activated
the LoJack® System concealed in the BMW.
A short while later officers from the Lauderhill Police picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen BMW with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from their PTCs, the officers tracked the vehicle to 1700 block of NW 54th avenue where the BMW was recovered. After crime scene units processed the vehicle for evidence the vehicle was returned to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the BMW 528i in May 2010 at Braman BMW in Palm Beach, Florida.
