The owner of a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze contacted the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department to report that his vehicle was stolen while parked in the city of Temecula.
The San Diego 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 short while later, officers from the San Diego Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet 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 Chevrolet to a residential neighborhood located at the 4500 block of South Hampton Street in the city of San Diego.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Cruze in February 2014 at Paradise Chevrolet Cadillac in Temecula, California.
