The owner of a 2007 Toyota Camry 4-door sedan arrived back from a trip in the early hours of the morning and discovered their car missing from the parking space where they had left it at the airport. They contacted the Miami-Dade Police Department to report their Toyota stolen. The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers.

Later that morning, an Auto Theft Task Force investigator picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Camry on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The investigator began tracking the stolen Camry by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The investigator, along with their backup from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, located the 4-door sedan abandoned in the driveway of a warehouse in 2100 block of S.W. 58th Terrace, West Park. A diligent deputy continued the investigation and in doing so, located a stolen 2013 Yamaha WR250R motorcycle as well. The Camry and motorcycle were recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping, and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2007 Toyota Camry in April 2009 at Lexus of Pembroke Pines in Florida.
