The owner of a 2013 Toyota Corolla 4-door sedan was accosted by four subjects who carjacked their car. Once composing themselves, the owner contacted the Jupiter Police Department to report their Corolla 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 that morning, while on routine patrol, a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office K-9 deputy picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Corolla on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The deputy began tracking the stolen Corolla by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The deputy, along with their backup, located the 4-door sedan abandoned in a cul-de-sac near West 27th Street and Avenue Q. The Corolla was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping and processing and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2013 Toyota Corolla in January 2016 at Palm Beach Toyota in West Palm Beach, Florida.
