The owners of a Chevrolet Cavalier contacted the Unified Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen.
A police officer 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 with the Salt Lake City Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.
Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Chevrolet to approximately 900 East and 2100 South where they located the vehicle and arrested one juvenile suspect for auto theft.
The Cavalier was recovered and returned to the very surprised and happy owners.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Cavalier in 2001 at MK Smith Chevrolet in Chino, California.
