The owners of a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro SS contacted the Fremont Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. The victim indicated the Camaro was parked in her front driveway and the thieves entered and removed the vehicle during the early morning hours.

The Fremont PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Camaro.

Less than an hour later both the Piedmont Police Department and the California Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Camaro with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. At the same time members of the ACRATT Auto Theft Task Force observed the Camaro parked in a residential area in the foothills of Oakland. The ACRATT team set up a covert surveillance of the Camaro in hopes it would result in an arrest of the suspect. The next morning with no activity the Camaro was recovered and towed for safe keeping to be released to the owner later.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Camaro in August 2015 at Stewart Auto Group in Colma, California.
