The owner of a 2002 Lexus SC430 contacted the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 100 Baker Lane in Sterling, Virginia. The Loudoun County SD Radio dispatched a deputy to investigate the incident. The deputy quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the Lexus. When the deputy was unable to locate the Lexus a stolen vehicle report was prepared. The deputy then arranged for the stolen vehicle information to be entered into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Lexus SC430.
A short while later, officers from the United States Park Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Lexus SC430 with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Lexus to the area of the Old Aqueduct Bridge in the Georgetown area of Washington, DC. At this location officers located the Lexus parked and unoccupied. The undamaged Lexus was then recovered by police and the owner notified.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2002 Lexus SC430 in May 2001 at Len Stoler Lexus in Owings Mills, Maryland.
