The owners of a 2010 Chrysler 300 contacted the Glendale Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen the night prior with the keys from the parking lot of a market near 75th Avenue and Glendale Avenue.
The Glendale 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 Chrysler.
A short while later, a vehicle equipped with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chrysler. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the Chrysler was tracked to a neighborhood near 16th Street and McDowell Road in Phoenix.
The Phoenix PD helicopter and marked patrol units with PTCs responded to the area and located the stolen Chrysler unoccupied. The Chrysler was parked under an awning in the alley behind some residential buildings. The Chrysler was locked and recovered in good condition. No suspects were located in the area. The Chrysler was processed for evidence and impounded for safe keeping.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chrysler 300 in December 2015 at Volkswagen of North Scottsdale in Arizona.
