On January 12, 2013, the owner of a 2012 Toyota Corolla contacted the Newark Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen. The customer told police that his vehicle was last seen parked in front of his home. The customer also called the LoJack call center to advise LoJack of the theft.

The Newark 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 Corolla.

A short time later, a police officer from the Jersey City Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Corolla 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 Route 440, where they recovered the undamaged vehicle.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2012 Toyota Corolla on May 2, 2012 at Toyotaland (DEX) in Springfield, New Jersey.
