The owner of this Chevrolet Silverado contacted the Kern County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The Kern County SD 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.
A few hours after the LoJack was activated, a deputy with the Kern County SD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the deputy tracked the Chevrolet to the vicinity of Edison Highway and Morning Drive in east Bakersfield. The deputy located the Chevrolet parked in the rear parking lot of an apartment complex. The Chevrolet was unoccupied and abandoned. The Chevrolet was recovered intact and undamaged; it was stored pending release to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Silverado in December 2000 at Clippinger Chevrolet Hummer in West Covina, California.
