When this Brooklyn, NY resident’s Scion tC was found missing one Monday morning, the owner called local law enforcement right away. When police entered the vehicle’s information into their computer system, the LoJack® system installed in the Scion was activated right away, allowing police to recovered and return the vehicle before any damage could occur.

On October 14th, 2013, the Scion’s owner contacted the NYPD 73rd precinct in Brownsville, Brooklyn, to report the crime.  Officers at the scene took a written report. This information was then entered into the NYPD stolen Auto Computer and the national NCIC computer. The LoJack transponder in the tC, which was installed at Lee’s Toyota in Jamaica, NY, was then automatically activated.

A short while later, officers from the 81st precinct picked up the homing signal from the stolen car on the LoJack tracking computers installed in their patrol vehicles. The officers tracked the Scion to a commercial area in the Ocean Hill Brownsville section of Brooklyn, where it was parked and abandoned on the street. The tC was soon returned to its relieved owner.
