The owners of a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro contacted the Antioch Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. The victim stated the Camaro was parked in front of the house overnight and when they got up the next morning it was missing.
The Antioch 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 Camaro.

A short while later troopers from the Nevada Highway Patrol 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 troopers tracked the Camaro to the area of Craig and Jones Streets. The troopers then observed the Camaro on a U-Haul trailer being pulled by a Nissan Pickup. The troopers conducted a felony stop and detained the driver and female passenger. Investigation revealed the U-Haul trailer was also stolen and the Nissan was a rental. The driver was arrested for receiving stolen property and the stolen trailer and Camaro were towed for safe keeping. The Nissan was towed to be released to the rental company later.

The male suspect was booked into Clark County Jail and the female was released at the scene.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Camaro in October 2015 at Winter Chevrolet in Pittsburg, California.
