On December 22, 2012, the owner of a 2012 Toyota Camry contacted the Hoboken Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen. According to the owner, he was working delivering newspapers; as he exited the vehicle at one of his stops, someone jumped into the idling vehicle and drove away. The owner also called the LoJack Customer Service Desk to advise LoJack of the theft.

The Hoboken Police Department verified the theft and entered the Toyota’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short time later, an officer with the Newark Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen 2012, Toyota Camry on the Police Tracking Computer installed in his patrol vehicle. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the officer tracked the vehicle to Ninth Street, where he located the undamaged vehicle, parked on the street.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2012 Toyota Camry on September 22, 2012 at Hudson Toyota in Jersey City, New Jersey.
