On November 13, 2012, the owner of a 2007 Mercedes Benz C350 contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that she was car jacked during an armed robbery in the 6900 block of Deep Dell Road in the city of San Diego.

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

Within an hour, officers from the San Diego Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Mercedes Benz 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 parking lot at the 6900 block of Ramfos Lane in San Diego.   

The owner was very happy when San Diego Police contacted her to recover the vehicle, which was found abandoned and undamaged.  The vehicle was valued at approximately $30,300.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Mercedes Benz C350 on November 17, 2009 at Mercedes Benz of Anaheim in California.
