On November 2, 2012, the owner of a 2009 Lexus IS250 left his residence to head to work when he discovered his vehicle stolen. He immediately contacted the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to report the theft.

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

Minutes later, officers with the Sacramento Police Department began to receive the silent signal emitting from the stolen Lexus. Following the directional and signal strength cues on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs), the officers located the Lexus, parked in a commercial area of Sacramento. The vehicle, valued at $30,900, was intact and in good condition.

The victim was contacted and responded to the recovery scene to take possession of his vehicle.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Lexus IS250 in November of 2008 at Lexus of Sacramento in Sacramento, California.
