(PHOTO) LoJack® System Helps Miami Police Department Recover a Stolen 1999 Kenworth T-800 Dump Truck

  • February 20, 2015

The owner of a 1999 Kenworth T-800 dump truck arrived at their storage facility, discovered that the locked chain that secured the gate was cut and their dump truck missing. The owner contacted the Fort Lauderdale Police Department to report their vehicle stolen. The Fort Lauderdale PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Kenworth.

A short while later a Miami Police Department sergeant picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Kenworth on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The sergeant began tracking the stolen Kenworth by following the directional and audible cues on their PTC screen. The sergeant, along with their backup, located the Kenworth abandoned on N.W. 18th Avenue, between 22nd and 23rd Street. The Kenworth was recovered, released to the owner, who responded to the scene, and removed from federal and state crime computer systems.


The LoJack® System was installed in the 1999 Black Kenworth T-800 dump truck in February 2005.
