On July 24, 2012, the owner of a 2010 Toyota Siena contacted the Newark Police Department to report that the vehicle had been stolen. The vehicle owner stated that her vehicle was last seen at 9:30PM, parked in the driveway on West Runyon Street, in the city of Newark. Later that night, she looked out of her window and discovered the vehicle missing. She advised that this is the second time her vehicle has been stolen.
The Newark Police Department verified the theft and entered the Toyota’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.
A short time later, an officer from the Newark Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Toyota on the Police Tracking Computer installed in his police vehicle. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the officer tracked the vehicle to an area near Jefferson Street, in the City of Newark, New Jersey. The vehicle was recovered parked and undamaged.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Toyota Siena at Hudson Toyota in Jersey City, New Jersey.
