On December 25, 2012, the owner of a 2005 Chrysler Sebring was in another room of an apartment when a female acquaintance took his keys and stolen the vehicle from the complex’s parking lot. The owner then contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report the vehicle stolen.

Phoenix Police verified the theft and had the vehicle information entered into the state and federal crime computer systems. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle. Neither the owners nor law enforcement had to do anything else to activate the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery Network because LoJack’s interface with law enforcement is both seamless and instantaneous.

A short time later, Phoenix Police officers from the Central City Precinct began picking up the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Chrysler with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their police vehicle. The officers began following the LoJack silent signals and were led to the 2400 block of North 24th Street, where they discovered the vehicle parked on the street. The officers were not able to locate any suspects at the scene; they recovered the vehicle and returned it to the grateful victim.

The LoJack Recovery System was installed in the Chrysler Sebring in May 2005 by Power Chrysler/Jeep in Scottsdale, Arizona.
