On July 20, 2012, the owner of a 2003 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck contacted the Waxahachie Police Department to report that her vehicle was stolen from her home in Waxahachie by her ex-boyfriend.
Waxahachie Police 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 pickup.
A short while later, officers from Baton Rouge Police Department in Louisiana picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Toyota on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle and observed it being driven with two suspects inside. Officers were able to stop this stolen Toyota and arrest the ex-boyfriend, who was driving.
This stolen Toyota was recovered with no damage.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2003 Toyota Tacoma pickup in September of 2003 at the Metroplex Toyota dealership in Duncanville, Texas.
