On August 23, 2012, the owner of a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro contacted the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office to report the vehicle stolen from his residence just outside of Baton Rouge.

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Chevrolet.

A short whlie later, deputies from the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Chevrolet Camaro on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and signal strength cues on the LoJack computers, the deputies tracked the vehicle as it was being driven into an apartment complex in Baton Rouge. The officers located it, abandoned, and recovered the undamaged vehicle. It was later released to the grateful owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Chevrolet Camaro in January of 2011 at Maroone Chevrolet of Pembroke, Florida.
