The owner of an Acura Integra contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from his residence in the city of San Diego.
The San Diego 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 Acura.
Within 36 minutes, officers from the University of California Riverside Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Acura 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 Acura to University and Canyon Crest Ave in Riverside. One suspect was arrested for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.
The Acura was previously reported stolen with the San Diego PD in 2009 and 2011. Both times the Acura was tracked and recovered with the LoJack® System.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Acura Integra in September 1998 at Cush Kearny Mesa in San Diego, California.
