The owner of a 2016 GMC Acadiacontacted the Oceanside Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen in the city of Oceanside.

Oceanside 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 GMC.

At a later time, deputies from San Diego County Sheriff’s Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen GMC 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 deputies tracked the vehicle to the area of Promenade Circle North of Emerald Drive in the city of Vista.      

The LoJack® System was installed in the GMC Acadia on February 2017 at Enterprise Car Sales, Vista, California.
