The owner of a 2015 Toyota Tacoma 4×4 Pickup contacted the Livermore Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The vehicle was taken in the early morning hours from the driveway of the victim’s residence in the 2600 block of Kelly Street.
The Livermore Police Department 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 Tacoma.

A short while later, officers from the Livermore Police Department were directed to the stolen vehicle by the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota Tacoma, 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 stolen Toyota Tacoma to the parking lot of a fast food restaurant at First Street and South “N” Street where they found the vehicle unoccupied.

The vehicle was recovered and released to the owner at the scene.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Tacoma Pickup in December 2014, at Roseville Toyota, in Roseville, CA.
