22-year-old LoJack system helps police find stolen car

Authorities from the Bernalillo County (New Mexico) Sheriff’s Office recently located a stolen pickup using a LoJack system that had been installed decades earlier.

After deputies confirmed the stolen vehicle report and entered it into their system, Albuquerque police were sent in pursuit of a silent LoJack signal coming from a gas station. When police arrived, they found the missing Dodge D350 pickup and returned it to its owners at the scene of the crime.

The owners said they purchased the vehicle new from a dealership and had a LoJack system installed 22 years ago.

LoJack is a publicly trade company specializing in vehicle tracking technology. According to the company's 2015 Vehicle Theft Recovery Report, $83.5 million in stolen vehicles were recovered in 2014 because of LoJack equipment.
