What can you do in 15 minutes? Well, you could get coffee at a donut shop, or a meal at a fast food restaurant. You could pick up a few things at the supermarket or take a really brief nap. Or…if you are the Los Angeles Police Department, working in conjunction with the LoJack System, you could recover a stolen car.
On April 6th, 2013, the owner of a 2010 Chrysler Sebring contacted the LAPD- Hollywood Station to report that their vehicle was stolen from underground parking at their apartment building.
The LAPD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into their state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack unit concealed in the Chrysler, which was installed at Enterprise Car Sales in Culver City, CA.
A very short while later, LAPD Hollywood Division officers picked up the homing signals from the Sebring on the LoJack tracking computer installed in their patrol vehicle. They tracked the signal to Hawthorn Street where they observed a female suspect driving the stolen vehicle. The officers quickly took the suspect into custody. The undamaged Chrysler was soon returned to its owner.
