LoJack System Helps Michigan State Police Aviation and Flint Area Task Force Recover Stolen GMC Yukon

Print Friendly

 

The owners of a 2007 GMC Yukon contacted the Mount Morris Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their driveway overnight. After checking closer, the owners realized that they had accidently left a spare set of keys in the GMC.

The Mount Morris 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 GMC.

A short while later pilots from the Michigan State Police Aviation Unit on routine patrol in Flint, picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen GMC with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the pilots tracked the LoJack signal to a residential area of Flint. The pilots determined that the stolen GMC had to be hidden inside a garage.

The Genesee Auto-Theft Investigative Network (GAIN Task Force) responded to the area and was able to locate the garage that the LoJack signal was coming from. Consent to search was obtained from the renter and the stolen GMC was found undamaged inside the garage. Information was obtained from the renter as to who was storing the GMC in the garage. That person was also interviewed and gave conflicting information. The stolen GMC was impounded. Arrests are pending further investigation by the GAIN Task Force.

The LoJack® System was installed in the GMC Yukon XL Denali in October 2007 at Sheehan Autoplex in Pompano Beach, Florida.
