The owners of a 2005 GMC Envoy contacted the Detroit Police Department to report their vehicle stolen.  Detroit Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the GMC.

A short while later deputies from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen GMC with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the deputies tracked the vehicle to residential area of Pontiac.  The stolen GMC was found parked and unoccupied in a driveway.   

Because of the quick recovery the suspects did not have enough time to strip it or use it to commit additional crimes.  The stolen GMC was impounded and later returned to the owner.  This matter is to be further investigated by Oakland County Auto Theft (OCAT).

The LoJack® System was installed in the GMC Envoy Denali in October 2007 at Len Stoler, Owings Mills, MD.
