The owners of a Chevrolet Tahoe contacted the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle was stolen in the city of Jurupa Valley.
The Riverside 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.
Within 25 minutes, officers from the Riverside 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 the area of Lincoln Ave and Crest Blvd in Riverside. A traffic stop was initiated and one suspect was taken into custody for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Tahoe in August 2002 at Midway Chevrolet in Phoenix, Arizona.
