When the owner of this Toyota Solara discovered it missing from his residence in Oak Harbor, he reported the crime to the Oak Harbor Police Department.
The Oak Harbor PD verified the information and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Toyota.
A Washington State Patrol Cessna, equipped with a LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC), received the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota while flying over Skagit County. The pilots relayed the location to the Mount Vernon Police Department. Officers driving patrol cars that were also equipped with a PTC located the Toyota in the 100 block of Willow Lane. One suspect in the Toyota was taken into custody and booked into jail.
The Toyota did not appear to be damaged.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Solara in September 2002 at Right Toyota in Scottsdale, Arizona.
