The owner of a 2012 Toyota Corolla 4-door sedan discovered their car missing from in front of their house. They contacted the Miami Police Department to report their vehicle stolen. The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers.

Immediately upon activation, while on routine patrol, a Miami PD officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Corolla on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The officer began tracking the stolen Corolla by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The officer, along with their backup, located the 4-door sedan abandoned on S.W. 18th Street, just west of S.W. 18th Avenue. The 4-door sedan was recovered, released to the owner, who responded to the scene and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2012 Toyota Corolla in May 2012 at Kendall Toyota in Miami, Florida.
