The owner of a 1993 Dodge D350 dually pickup contacted the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office to report the vehicle was stolen. The BCSO deputy verified the auto theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Dodge.
Within just 25 minutes after the activation, a vehicle equipped with a LoJack Police Tracking Computer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Dodge. Following the audible and directional cues from the PTC, the Dodge was tracked and located to the area of Central and Coors. Officers with the Albuquerque Police Department located the Dodge unoccupied at a fuel station. The officers recovered and released the Dodge back to the owners at the scene. The owners were ecstatic in getting their vehicle back stating they purchased the Dodge new at the dealership. The owners further advised they purchased the LoJack® System for the Dodge but did not think it would still work nearly 22 years later. They thanked the officers and the deputy for the speedy recovery of their Dodge.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Dodge D350 in November 1993 at Dodge World in Torrance, California.
