The owners of a 2004 Chevrolet Impala contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen with the keys from their residence.
The Phoenix 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 Chevrolet.
Five minutes later, officers from the Phoenix PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet 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 Chevrolet to a neighborhood approximately one half mile from where it was stolen.
The stolen Chevrolet was found parked on the street in the neighborhood. The suspect was identified and released pending further investigation. The Chevrolet was recovered in good condition and returned to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Impala in October 2003 at Power Chevrolet on Camelback Road in Phoenix, Arizona.
