The owner of a 2013 Toyota Camry 4-door sedan parked their car in the parking lot of a local establishment. In the early hours of the next morning when they left, they discovered their car missing. They contacted the West Palm Beach 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.

Later in the day, while on routine patrol, a North Palm Beach Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Camry on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The officer began tracking the stolen Camry by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The officer, along with their backup, located the 4-door sedan abandoned in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 2800 block of Georgia Avenue. The Camry was recovered, released to the owner, who responded to the scene, and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems. The owner stated that all keys were accounted for and was confused about how somebody could have stolen her Camry.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2013 Toyota Camry in November 2015 at Palm Beach Toyota in West Palm Beach, Florida.
