The owners of a Nissan Frontier contacted the Ontario Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen by a known suspect.
Officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Nissan Frontier.
Within ten minutes after activation, deputies from the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department Rancho Station picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan Frontier with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the deputies tracked the Nissan from Campus and Granada to the 8600 block of Foothill Blvd where they located the Nissan parked and occupied. Three individuals were detained and after a field investigation the female adult driver was taken into custody and later booked for the vehicle theft and receiving stolen property. The other two individuals were released at the scene as they were not involved in the theft. The victim came to the scene and obtained where his Nissan was released. Case referred to the Deputy District Attorney.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Frontier in April 2004 at Metro Nissan in Montclair, CA.
