The owners of a 2007 Toyota Camry contacted the Antioch Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. The victim left the Toyota running in front of their residence and went inside momentarily to retrieve some items. When she returned the Toyota had been stolen.
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 Toyota.

A short while later officers from the California Highway Patrol Auto Theft Task Force picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota 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 to the area of Hamelin Dr and Meringa’s Way in the City of Pittsburg. The officers observed the Toyota parked and abandoned on the street of this residential area.
The victim was contacted and responded to take possession of her undamaged Toyota.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Camry Hybrid in June 2007 at Rockland Toyota in Blauvelt, New York.
