On the afternoon of March 25, 2012, the owner of a 2010 Toyota Corolla contacted the Gloucester Police Department to report the vehicle stolen.
The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report and had the Toyota’s information entered into the state and federal crime computer systems – a routine police action that automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed within the Toyota Corolla.
Within minutes, officers from the Gloucester Police Department began to receive the Toyota’s silent LoJack signal on their patrol car’s LoJack Police Tracking Computers. Following the directional and signal strength cues on the tracking computers, the officers quickly located the stolen Corolla, still in the town of Gloucester. The entire event took only 42 minutes from the time of entry into the police database.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed at Toyota of Turnersville on August 31, 2010.
