While the owner of this Lexus ES350 was out of the country for three weeks, persons unknown burglarized his residence located in the 15900 block of Ash Way near Lynnwood. Several items were stolen including two cars, the Lexus and a Toyota Highlander. When he returned and discovered the crimes it was reported to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. They verified the report and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Lexus.
That same evening, a Snohomish County SO deputy received the silent signal from the stolen Lexus ES350 on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following directional and audible cues on the PTC, the deputy located the Lexus in the 18000 block of Highway 99 in Lynnwood. The Lexus was abandoned and apparently not damaged.
The Toyota Highlander has not been recovered.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Lexus ES350 in February 2016 when he purchased it new at Lexus of Bellevue in Washington.
