The victims of an armed “Car Jacking” reported the theft of their 2015 Mazda MZ3 to the Los Angeles Police Department Foothill Division.
The LAPD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Mazda.
A short time later, patrol officers from the LAPD Mission division picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Mazda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Mazda to the area of Olive View Drive and Eisenhower. The officers requested additional units to respond to the location. The officers conducted a felony traffic stop and took five suspects into custody for “Car Jacking” related charges without incident.
The Mazda was impounded for safe keeping.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Mazda MZ in November 2015 at Galpin Mazda in Van Nuys, California.
