On the afternoon of July 27, 2012, the owner of a 2008 Chrysler 300 contacted the Vancouver Police Department to report the vehicle stolen from the 1000 block of East McLoughlin Boulevard earlier that day.  Vancouver Police verified the theft and entered the Chrysler’s identification number into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Chrysler.

Less than ten minutes later, an officer with the Vancouver Police Department received the silent LoJack homing signal transmitting from the stolen Chrysler on the Police Tracking Computer installed in his patrol car.  Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the officer located the stolen Chrysler in the 3700 block of NE Auto Mall Drive. The vehicle did not appear to be damaged, and was released to the owner. Suspect information was developed from fingerprints in the car.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Chrysler 300 in April of 2011 at the owner’s request when she purchased it at Dick Hannah’s Honda in Vancouver, Washington.
