On July 1, 2012 the owner of a 2009 Buick Enclave contacted the Kern County Sheriff’s Department to report that the vehicle was stolen from in front of his residence. The Kern County Sheriff’s Department 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 Buick Enclave.

That evening, a deputy from the Kern County Sheriff’s Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Buick on the Police Tracking Computer installed in his patrol vehicle. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the deputy tracked the vehicle to the 11000 block of Lariat Court in Bakersfield. The vehicle was found abandoned, parked on the side of the road in a residential area.

The vehicle was recovered intact and undamaged; it was released to the owner at the recovery scene.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2009 Buick Enclave on January 22, 2009 at Cerritos Pontiac GMC in Cerritos, California. This vehicle is valued at $24,500.
