The owners of a 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen.
The Phoenix 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 Chevrolet.
Four minutes later, officers from the Phoenix PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet 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 Chevrolet to a neighborhood near 16th Street and Broadway.
The officers located the Chevrolet occupied and conducted a high risk traffic stop on the vehicle. The driver complied and was taken into custody without incident. The suspect was arrested and booked for the theft of the Chevrolet. The Chevrolet was later returned to the owners in good condition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Tahoe in December 2005 at Van Chevrolet in Scottsdale, Arizona.
