The owner of this Infiniti G37 contacted the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The Riverside County SD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Infiniti.
Just 30 minutes after the LoJack was activated and nearly 200 miles to the north, an officer with the Tulare Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Infiniti with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officer tracked the Infiniti to a city park near the 100 block of S “I” Street near downtown Tulare. The officer observed the unoccupied Infiniti parked on the street. He began to canvas the area and located an adult male. The officer detained and questioned the male about the Infiniti. Eventually the male admitted that he had been driving the Infiniti and produced the keys. He claimed that another male had given him the Infiniti but would not elaborate. The suspect was ultimately arrested for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.
The Infiniti was stored pending release to the owner; it was intact and undamaged.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Infiniti in March 2010 by Infiniti of 1000 Oaks in Thousand Oaks, California.
