The California based owner of the Chevrolet Silverado in this case discovered his pickup missing just after 8 pm on a Saturday night. Thanks to his local law enforcement, with help from the LoJack® system installed when the truck was purchased, it took less than a half hour after activation for the vehicle to be recovered.
On January 4th, 2014, the Chevy’s owner contacted the Visalia Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen. Officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. The LoJack transponder concealed in the Silverado was then automatically activated.
Less than 30 minutes later, detectives from the Tulare County Auto Theft Task Force (TRATT) picked up the homing signals from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack tracking computers installed in their undercover police vehicles. The detectives located the truck in a residential area near Renn and Myrtle Avenues in Hanford, where they found it parked and abandoned on a residential cul-de-sac. The undamaged Silverado was soon released to its thankful owner.
