The owner of a Nissan Sentra contacted the Chula Vista Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen in the city of Chula Vista.
The Chula Vista PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Nissan.
Within 30 minutes, officers from the Chula Vista PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan 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 Nissan to the 400 block of Woodlawn Ave in the city of Chula Vista. A traffic stop was made; one suspect was taken into custody for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Sentra in August 2005 at Mossy Nissan in El Cajon, California.
