The owners of a 2006 Dodge Magnum contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen in the city of San Diego.
The San Diego 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 Dodge.
Within 5 minutes officers from the Chula Vista Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Dodge 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 Dodge to a residential area located in the area of Elders Ave and 5th Street in the city of Chula Vista.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Dodge Magnum in February 2006 at Carl Burger Dodge in La Mesa, California.
