The owner of a 2007 Lexus 250 contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that his 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 Lexus.
Within 31 minutes officers from the San Diego PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Lexus 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 Lexus to the 4200 block of Genesee Avenue in the city of San Diego. A traffic stop was made; one suspect was arrested for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property. The suspect had previously been arrested for stealing two Jeep Wranglers and was on probation for that incident.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Lexus 250 in January 2007 at Lexus Kearny Mesa in San Diego, California.
