The owners of a 2017 Toyota Sienna contacted the Stockton Police Department report that their vehicle was stolen. The victim stopped at a coffee shop and went inside to grab a cup of coffee. The victim left the Toyota running to keep the air conditioning on. A suspect jumped inside the Toyota and drove off.
The Stockton 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 Toyota.
A short time later officers and deputies from the Stockton PD and the San Joaquin Sheriff’s 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 deputies tracked the Toyota to the residential area near Porter Ave and Mitchler Ave. The deputies then observed the Toyota parked and abandoned at the curb. The Toyota was intact and did not sustain any damage.
The victim was contacted and responded to drive their recovered Toyota home.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2017 Toyota Sienna in October 2016 at Roseville Toyota in California.
