On June 16, 2012, the owner of a Toyota Tundra pickup truck contacted the Puyallup Tribal Police Department to report the theft of the vehicle from a casino parking lot. Puyallup Tribal Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle’s identification number into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Toyota truck.

Less than one hour later, numerous Tacoma Police officers and a Lakewood Police officer received the silent LoJack homing signal transmitting from the stolen Toyota on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol cars.  Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the officers quickly tracked the truck to the 4000 block of South “M” Street in Tacoma, where they found it abandoned. The vehicle did not appear to be damaged.

The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Toyota in April of 2012 at Titus-Will Toyota when it was purchased as a used vehicle.
