The owners of a 2014 Mazda MZ3 contacted the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle was stolen.
The LASD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Mazda.
A short later, patrol officers from the Los Angeles Police Department Hollywood Division picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Mazda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Mazda to the area of the 5500 block of Carlton Way. The Mazda was located parked on the street.
The Mazda was impounded for safe keeping.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Mazda in April 2014 at Galpin Lincoln Mercury Mazda in Valencia, California.
