On January 12, 2013, a 2010 Toyota Highlander was taken by force during a domestic dispute. The Chicago 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 Highlander.
A short while later, officers with the Chicago Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Highlander on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and signal strength cues from the LoJack computers, the officers were able to quickly locate the stolen vehicle. The owner was glad to have her vehicle back in the same condition it was in before the theft, and credited LoJack with its swift recovery.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Toyota Highlander at Arlington Toyota in Palatine, Illinois on November 27, 2010. The owner stated that she is pleased with her decision to have LoJack installed, and would advise others to do the same.
