The owner of a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo contacted the Riverside Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen in the city of Riverside.

The Riverside 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 Jeep.

Within 18 minutes, officers from the Riverside PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Jeep 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 Jeep to the area of Jackson Ave. and Delano Blvd. in the city of Riverside. A traffic stop was initiated; the suspect was arrested for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo in May 2014 at Sierra Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Monrovia, California.
