The owner of a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro contacted the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. The victim stated he met someone while out for the evening and they returned to his residence. The victim awoke to the sound of his Camaro driving off and his guest was also gone.
The Alameda County SD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Camaro.
Less than an hour later, officers from the Union City Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Camaro 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 Camaro to the 34000 block of Alvarado-Niles Road, observed the Camaro parked and abandoned at the curb. There did not appear to be any damage to the Camaro.
The victim was contacted and responded to take possession of his Camaro.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro in January 2016 at Kuni Chevrolet Cadillac in Sacramento, California.
