On January 6, 2013, the owner of a 2009 Toyota Corolla contacted the Summit Police Department to report that her vehicle had been stolen. The customer told police that her vehicle was last seen parked in her driveway in front of her home.
The Summit Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Toyota Corolla.
A short time later, a police officer from the Jersey City Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Toyota 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 a parking lot on Kennedy Boulevard, where the undamaged vehicle was recovered.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Toyota Corolla on March 15, 2012 at Toyotaland (DEX), in Springfield, New Jersey.
