On July 23, 2012, the owner of a 2010 Toyota Corolla contacted the Fulton County Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from a shopping area.  The Fulton County Police 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 while later, the Georgia State Patrol NightHawk Unit picked up the silent LoJack homing signal coming 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 to a apartment complex. There, the troopers observed a driver behind the wheel and attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver sped off. However, more troopers were awaiting him as he exited the apartment complex, and he was quickly arrested.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2010 Toyota Corolla on December 22, 2010 at Team Toyota in Lithia Springs, Georgia.
