On February 23, 2013, the owner of a 2008 Toyota Corolla contacted the Perth Amboy Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen. The customer told police that the vehicle was last seen parked in his apartment complex’s parking lot.
The Perth Amboy 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 police officer from the Sayreville Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Toyota 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 an industrial complex in Sayreville, where the vehicle was recovered undamaged.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2008 Toyota Corolla on March 1, 2008 at Route 1 Toyota in Avenel, New Jersey.
