The owner of a 2005 Hummer H2 was having some custom work done to his Hummer at a local shop in Cartersville, Georgia.  When he showed up at the shop to pick up his Hummer, he found that it was gone. The owner contacted the Cartersville Police to report that his vehicle had been stolen.  The Cartersville Police Department 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 Hummer.

Several days later Officers from the Orlando Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Hummer with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from their PTCs, the officers tracked the vehicle to 700 block of Brevard court and a traffic stop was conducted.  The driver, an ex-employee of the repair shop was placed into custody and the Hummer was recovered.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Hummer H2 in March 2005 at Anderson of Hunt Valley, in Cockeysville, Maryland.
