On November 23, 2012, the owner of 2006 Saab 93 had his vehicle stolen from the street in Antioch, where it was left idling and unattended. The owner quickly contacted the Antioch Police Department to report the crime.

Antioch Police verified the crime information and entered the Saab’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.  LoJack is the only theft recovery system that is directly operated by law enforcement and this interface is seamless and instantaneous.

A short while later, officers with the Antioch Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Saab with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  The LoJack PTC provides officers with on-board information which permits them to locate the stolen vehicle quickly and with an increased margin of safety. Following the directional and signal strength cues on the LoJack computers, the officers quickly located the undamaged stolen car, parked and abandoned on the street.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this vehicle on October 2, 2008 in Inglewood, California, at CarMax Lax #7810.
