On June 19, 2012, the owner of a 2005 Chrysler PT-Cruiser contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from the driveway at his residence in San Diego. San Diego officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Chrysler.

Within an hour, officers from San Diego Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Chrysler on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles.  Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle to a residential neighborhood in the 200 block of Grape Street in San Diego.

The owner was very happy when San Diego Police contacted him to recover the vehicle which was found abandoned and undamaged.  The vehicle was valued at approximately $7,000.00.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Chrysler PT Cruiser in June of 2006 at McCune Motors in National City.
