The owners of a 2004 Toyota Tundra contacted the Mandeville Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen from in front of their residence. The owner stated that shortly after midnight they discovered the Toyota Tundra truck missing.
The Mandeville 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.
Short while later troopers from the Louisiana State Police picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota Tundra 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 Toyota across the Lake Pontchartrain and found it parked in front of a residence in Metairie, Louisiana. The troopers observed the truck as it was driven from the residence and conducted a felony stop. They learned that the driver was wanted on a fugitive warrant and placed under arrest.
The owner was contacted by the troopers and advised them their Toyota Tundra had been recovered quickly in great shape via LoJack. The Toyota was turned over to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Tundra in January 2008 at Northshore Toyota in Covington, Louisiana.
