On February 18, 2013, the owner of a 2010 Toyota Corolla contacted the Paterson Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen. The owner told police that the vehicle was last seen parked in his driveway.

The Paterson 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 while later, a patrol officer from the Passaic County Sheriff’s 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 the City of Paterson, where the vehicle was recovered abandoned and undamaged on West Broadway.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2010 Toyota Corolla on November 13, 2009 at Toyota of Hackensack in Hackensack, New Jersey.
