The owners of a 2002 Saturn 200 contacted the Pomona Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. 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 Saturn.
A short while later the Pomona PD officers were alerted to the LoJack signal by Air-PD-2 who had picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Saturn with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, Air PD-2 tracked the Saturn from Hamilton and Mission to the area of Phillips Rd where they saw the vehicle moving on the road way east of that location. The Air PD-2 directed units to that location and watched as units arrived and stopped the Saturn. Three juveniles were detained, processed and later released to their parents pending petitions for driving a motor vehicle without owner’s consent. The undamaged Saturn was released to the victim.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Saturn 200 in August 2006 by Claremont Toyota in California.
