The owners of a 2003 Cadillac Escalade SUV discovered that their car was stolen from the street in San Francisco.    

San Francisco Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Cadillac.

Less than 1 hour after the automatic activation of the LoJack System in the stolen Cadillac, Alameda County Auto Theft detectives picked up the silent signals from the LoJack System installed on the stolen Cadillac on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the stolen vehicle to the City of Hayward and elected to set up surveillance on it.  The stake-out paid dividends when 2 suspects drove up in a 2012 Chevy Tahoe and one attempted to drive the stolen Escalade.  Both were arrested. The Chevy Tahoe was a fresh stolen, also from San Francisco, however not LoJack® System equipped.  The owners of the stolen Cadillac Escalade were contacted to claim their stolen vehicle.    

LoJack® System was installed in the 2003 Cadillac Escalade on 11/10/2003 in Las Vegas, NV.
