According to sources, the estranged husband of the owner of 2010 Toyota Camry sedan visited his wife and took her car. On Monday evening, August 20, 2012, the husband drove the Toyota to an area to make an illicit deal; during the transaction, the vehicle was stolen. The owner contacted the Lee County Sheriff’s Department to report the theft.

Lee County deputies verified the theft and had the Toyota’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short while later, a Lee County deputy picked up the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Toyota Camry on the on-board LoJack Police Tracking computer (PTC). Following the directional and audible cues on the PTC’s screen, the deputy, along with backup, located the vehicle abandoned in a residential area in the 5300 block of 8th Avenue in the Pine Manor section of Lee County. The vehicle was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping, and removed from federal and state crime computer systems.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Toyota Camry on December 30, 2009 at Fort Myers Toyota, Inc. in Fort Myers, Florida, and has been protecting it ever since.
