The owner of this Scion TC left the car running in the driveway to warm up before leaving for work. This occurred in the 17700 block of 23rd Avenue SE near Bothell. When the theft was discovered, it was immediately reported to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office who verified the report and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Scion.
That same afternoon, the Mill Creek Police Department officers received the silent signal from the stolen Scion on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following directional and audible cues on the PTC the Scion was located in the 1800 block of 186th Place SE in Mill Creek. This is a large apartment complex. The Scion did not appear to be damaged.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Scion TC in June 2006 at Toyota of Puyallup in Washington.
