On September 23, 2012, the owner of a 2010 Lexus HS250 contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from the city of San Diego.

San Diego officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Lexus.

Within minutes, officers from the San Diego Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Lexus HS250 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 residential neighborhood in the 3900 block of Cherry Blossom Way in San Diego.

The Lexus, valued at approximately $35,000, was recovered abandoned and undamaged, and returned to the very grateful owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Lexus HS250 on December 28, 2009 at Lexus Kearny Mesa in San Diego, California.
