Lo Jack Device Helps in Recovery of $45K in Stolen Property in Louisiana

May 4, 2010

Louisiana State reported that information from Lo Jack Inc. related to a stolen 2006 Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle in the LaPlace area aided in the recovery of $45,000 worth of stolen property.

The Suzuki was reported stolen from Shreveport, La. By using the Lo Jack tracking device, Troopers located a Ford F-150 and a Haulmark motorcycle trailer parked in the Home Depot parking lot in LaPlace.

Troopers obtained a search warrant for the F-150 and trailer. Inside the trailer, Troopers found the stolen Suzuki and two other motorcycles (2006 Kawasaki Ninja and 2004 Yamaha R1) that were also reported stolen from Shreveport on April 29. The F-150 was stolen from Lafayette, La., on April 10 and the Haulmark trailer was stolen from Pass Christian, Miss., on Feb. 15, 2010.

The recovered property is valued at approximately $45,000.00. No arrests have been made and the investigation is on-going.

Lo Jack is a stolen vehicle recovery system that consists of a small radio frequency transceiver hidden in the vehicle. The transceiver has a unique code specifically tied to that vehicle’s VIN number. When Lo Jack is activated, the transceiver sends out an inaudible signal that is automatically traced in Lo Jack equipped police units.
