The owners of a 2016 Chevrolet Suburban contacted the Los Angeles Police Department Van Nuys Division to report that their vehicle was stolen. Officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Chevrolet Suburban.
A short while later an officer was sitting in his patrol vehicle writing a report when he picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. The officer alerted his dispatch and obtained the description indicating that the Chevrolet was near-by. At that time another officer radioed that he was behind the Chevrolet and was following it. When he attempted to stop the stolen Chevrolet, the female driver failed to yield and initiated a pursuit. The pursuit entered the 605 Freeway and terminated in Santa Fe Springs. The driver was taken into custody without further incident and later booked for several felonies including the theft of the Chevrolet and felony evading.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Suburban in January 2016 at Rydell Chevrolet in Northridge, California.
