On Monday, Lt. J. Buchanan and Deputy Walling of the Pct. 5 Constable’s Office flew with the Texas Department of Public Safety aviation unit while working a night ops mission in southwest Montgomery County.
While flying over an area in Pct. 5 the LoJack system equipped in the helicopter alerted the pilot that a vehicle or piece of equipment was stolen in the area. After calling in the LoJack identification number, dispatch stated it was a Kubota tractor.
The pilot and co-pilot pinpointed the exact location of the tractor that was reported stolen. The DPS pilot took the Precinct 5 deputies back to their patrol vehicles where they returned to the location and recovered the tractor that had been reported stolen.
