The owner of a local dealership contacted the California Highway Patrol North Sacramento Area to report that their Land Rover was stolen. The local dealership conducted a vehicle inventory and discovered the Land Rover was missing from their inventory and had been stolen.
The CHP-North Sacramento verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Land Rover.
A short while later officers with the CHP Air Operations, flying Air-21, picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Land Rover with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. The air unit requested back up ground units respond to the area north of Highway 50 and Watt Ave. The Sacramento Sheriff’s Department and units with the Sacramento Police Department responded and within minutes the stolen Land Rover was tracked and located. The Land Rover was parked and abandoned in an apartment parking lot in the 2300 block of Moraine Circle.
The Land Rover was impounded for safe keeping to be released later to the dealership.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Land Rover Range Rover in May 2015 by Niello Jaguar Land Rover in Sacramento, California.
