The owner of a Nissan Frontier contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from his residence in the city of San Diego.
The San Diego PD 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.
Within 5 minutes officers from the San Diego PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan 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 officers tracked the Nissan to a residential neighborhood located at Landis Ave. just east of 47th Street in San Diego.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Frontier in May 1999 by Mossy Nissan in El Cajon, California.
