The owners of a 2006 Toyota Tundra contacted the California Highway Patrol to report that their vehicle was stolen. The victim stated the Toyota was taken sometime during the night while parked in front of the victim’s residence.
The CHP Red Bluff Area verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Toyota.
Just 10 minutes later, officers from the Red Bluff Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota 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 Toyota to a residential area near Walton St and Wernmark Ave in the city of Red Bluff. The officers observed the Toyota parked and unoccupied at the curb.
The victim was contacted, responded to the scene and took possession of their Toyota.
