The owners of a Toyota Tacoma contacted the Tulsa Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from a residence in the 11000 block of S. 119th E Ave in Tulsa.
The Tulsa 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 Toyota.
A short while later a deputy with the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota 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 deputy tracked the Toyota to the 400 block of w 7th St in Tulsa.
The deputy observed the stolen Toyota parked in a parking space at an apartment complex. When located the Toyota was unoccupied. Unable to locate any suspects or witnesses at the scene of the recovery the undamaged Toyota was processed and later returned to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Tacoma in March 2002 at Sterling McCall Toyota in Houston, Texas.
