The owners of a Toyota Corolla contacted the Unified Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen.
A police officer 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.

Minutes later officers with both the Salt Lake City Police Department and the Motor Vehicle Enforcement Division began picking up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are provided to law enforcement agencies at no cost and that are installed in police patrol vehicles and aircraft.
Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC an investigator with the MVED tracked the Toyota to an apartment complex in Midvale. The Toyota was found unoccupied but was still warm and had been freshly abandoned by the thief. The Toyota was returned to the very grateful owners quickly and without any report of damage.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Corolla in November 2005 at Marina Del Rey Toyota Scion in California.
