This Chevrolet Tahoe was stolen by a person known to the owner. When all attempts to retrieve the Chevrolet failed, a theft report was filed with the Auburn Police Department.

The Auburn PD verified the report and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Tahoe.

Approximately one hour later, the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department deputies, equipped with a LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC), received the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet. The deputies located the Tahoe parked at an apartment complex in the 6400 block of South Stevens Street near Tacoma.

The Tahoe was abandoned but still warm. A tow company arrived to impound the Tahoe and at that time a female came out of the apartment complex and asked deputies why they were taking the vehicle. She stated she bought it but could not provide any proof of that transaction. After being advised of her rights she was placed under arrest and booked into jail.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Tahoe in November 2004 at Puyallup Nissan in Washington.
