This Lexus GX470 was stolen during the evening from the owner’s residence located in the 2300 block of Shoreland Drive South in Seattle. When the theft was discovered it was reported to the Seattle Police Department who 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.

Approximately one hour later, the King County Sheriff’s Office deputies assigned to SeaTac Police Department and the K9 unit picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Lexus. Following the directional and audible cues from the Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in their patrol car, they located the Lexus in the 13000 block of 23rd Avenue South in SeaTac. Several suspects were contacted at that location. Charges are pending against one of them. Additionally, a 2007 GMC Acadia reported stolen in a different incident was recovered.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Lexus GX470 in February 2008 at Lexus of Bellevue in Washington, at the request of the original owner.
