On Saturday June 23, 2012, the owner of a 2012 Toyota contacted the Upper Gwynedd Township Police to report that the vehicle had been stolen. The assigned officer from Upper Gwynedd Police verified the theft and had the Corolla’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers, which activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.
A short while later, officers from several Montgomery County Pennsylvania Police jurisdictions began to pick up the silent LoJack homing signal from the Corolla on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their police vehicles. Following the directional and audible signals on the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle to a large apartment complex on Welsh Road in Lower Gwynedd Township. Officers cautiously approached the parked vehicle and discovered it unoccupied. The vehicle was secured by officers and the investigation into the theft is continuing.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2012 Toyota on May 3, 2012 at Toyota of Turnersville in New Jersey.
