The owners of a 2010 Toyota Corolla contacted the Taylor Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their residence.
The Taylor 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 Toyota.
A short while later deputies from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota 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 deputies tracked the Toyota to a remote residential street in Taylor, Michigan. It appeared that the suspects parked it to “cool off.”
Because of the quick recovery the suspects did not have enough time to strip it or use it to commit additional crimes. The stolen Toyota was impounded.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Corolla in February 2010 at Herb Chambers in Auburn, Massachusetts.
