The owner of a 2012 Chevrolet Impala contacted the Gwinnett County Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen from a hotel parking lot while on a business trip to Atlanta.

The Gwinnett County 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 Impala.

A short while later officers from the Georgia Motor Vehicle Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen car with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to a MARTA station where it was found abandoned and in good shape.

The Gwinnett County police had the vehicle towed to a local tow yard until it could be released to the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the vehicle in May 2013 at Hennessy Mazda-Pontiac-GMC in Morrow, GA
