This Chevrolet K3500 truck was stolen during the evening hours from the 2600 block of NW Raleigh Street in Portland. When the theft was discovered it was reported to the Portland Police Bureau who verified the report and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Chevrolet truck.

Less than one hour later, a Portland Police Bureau officer and a Port of Portland Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the 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, they tracked the truck to SW Harrison and SW 4th Street where it was observed occupied by three individuals. They attempted to evade capture but were not successful. The three suspects were taken into custody when they lost control of the truck at SW Barbur Blvd. & Terwilliger Blvd.

The LoJack® System was installed in this Chevrolet K3500 in December of 2009 at Suburban Chevrolet in Sandy, Oregon.
