On a Sunday night before the manager of a national home improvement store in San Antonio, TX left for the evening, the store’s skid steer loader was secured on a trailer.
The manager had a very unpleasant Monday morning, as he discovered that the loader had been stolen right off the trailer. Fortunately, the skid steer was equipped with a LoJack System, enabling officers from the San Antonio Police Department Auto Theft unit to start tracking its whereabouts.
Officers located the skid steer abandoned in a field behind a community swimming pool, hidden under trees. It appeared that the thieves had left it to “cool off”—waiting to see if police were able to locate it with a LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System. Fortunately, they did and were able to return the skid steer back to its grateful owner.
