The owners of a 2014 Chrysler 200 contacted the West Sacramento Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. The victim came home from work and discovered unknown suspects had stolen their Chrysler sometime during the day.

The W. Sacramento 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.

Less than 10 minutes officers from the Citrus Heights Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chrysler 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 Chrysler to the area of Sayonara and Larwin streets in Citrus Heights. The officers observed the Chrysler parked and abandoned in this residential neighborhood.

The Chrysler did not sustain any damage and the victim was contacted and responded to take possession of his vehicle less than 20 minutes after it was reported stolen.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chrysler 200 in July 2015 at Roseville Toyota in California.
