Teamwork is an essential part of recovering a stolen vehicle. Not only do the police work together with the LoJack® System, but often several branches of Law Enforcement share information after receiving the LoJack homing signals, in order to track down car thieves in the most expedient way possible.
On April 6, 2013, the owner of a 2007 Toyota Avalon came home to discover that someone had stolen his car. He contacted the San Joaquin, CA Sheriff’s Department, who verified the crime information and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. This automatically activated the LoJack® unit concealed in the vehicle, which was installed by Kearney Mesa Toyota in San Diego, CA.
A short while later, California Highway Patrol-Napa Aviation H-32, Alameda County Sheriffs and Livermore Police all picked up the homing signals from the stolen Toyota with the LoJack tracking computers installed in their vehicles and aircraft. Not long after, Livermore Police stopped the stolen car and arrested the driver. The undamaged Avalon was soon returned to its owner.
