The owners of a 2017 Ford F250 reported that unknown persons had obtained the keys to one of their company vehicles and removed it from the business. The company called Cobb County Police and reported the theft to them. Once Cobb County Police verified the theft, then they entered the vehicle’s information into the NCIC system, which automatically activated the hidden LoJack in the vehicle.
After being entered as stolen Officers from Georgia Motor Carriers Enforcement unit picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford with the LoJack Tracking Computers (PTC’s) installed in their vehicles and Air Units. After searching the area where they picked up the signal, they were able to find the vehicle with tow subjects inside of it. They had been using the vehicle to dump garbage. The driver was taken in to Police custody and charged with the stolen vehicle. The vehicle was recovered within hours of the reported theft with no damage to it. It was returned to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the vehicle as a commercial install in March 2017 in Atlanta, Ga.
