The owner of a 2002 Toyota Camry Solara 4-door sedan contacted the West Palm Beach Police Department to report that their vehicle stolen. The owner explained to the responding officer that he parked his Toyota in front of his home. Approximately 4 hours later, when he left his house to go somewhere, he discovered the Toyota missing. The police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Toyota.

Later that evening, while on routine patrol, a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputy picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC).  The deputy began tracking the stolen Toyota by following the directional and audible cues on their PTC screen. The deputy, along with their backup, located the Toyota in the 700 block of Latona Avenue, Lake Worth. The Toyota was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping, and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2002 Toyota Camry Solara in August 2002 by Lawrence Toyota Inc. in Lawrenceville, New Jersey.
