The detectives from the Los Angeles County TRAP west team received information from a local car dealership about a possible fraud involving a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro. The detectives conducted a fraud investigation, determined that a suspect had provided the dealership with stolen identity and false financial statements.
The detectives entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Chevrolet.
Forty-two (42) minutes later, patrol officers from the Long Beach Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet on a LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC), that are installed in their units. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the Chevrolet was tracked to the area of MLK Blvd and 19th Street. The Chevrolet was parked on the street. A suspect has been identified and the investigation is ongoing.
The Chevrolet was recovered and impounded for safe keeping.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet in December 2014 at Rydell Chevrolet in Northridge, California.
