When the Washington State residents in this case discovered their Chevrolet Avalanche missing from their apartment complex lot, they hoped that the LoJack® system they had installed when they purchased their SUV would help police find their vehicle fast, and LoJack did just that- assisting law enforcement in recovering the Avalanche in just over a half hour after activation.
On February 11th, 2014, the Chevy’s owners contacted the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office to report the crime. Deputies verified the information and entered the vehicle identification number into the state and federal crime computers. That process automatically activated the LoJack unit concealed in the Avalanche, which was installed at Lee Johnson Chevrolet in Kirkland, WA.
Just twenty minutes later, officers from Snohomish County SO, Mill Creek PD and Washington State Patrol received the homing signal transmitting from the stolen SUV on the LoJack tracking computers installed in their patrol vehicles. The Chevy was located at an apartment complex in Lynnwood, where it was parked and abandoned. The undamaged Avalanche was retrieved and soon returned to its relieved owner.
