The owners of a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro contacted the Clayton County Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen during the night from his driveway.
The Clayton County 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 Camaro.
A short while later troopers from the Georgia State Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Camaro 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 troopers tracked the Camaro to a vacant building where it was found with no one around.
The trooper decided to back off and see if a person would return and attempt to drive the Camaro away. After about fifteen minutes a male suspect came up to the Camaro, looked around as if it was his and attempted to drive off. The trooper stopped the Camaro about a block from where it was found and arrested the driver for the theft and transported to the local detention center.
The Chevrolet Camaro was in very good condition. The trooper thought that the suspect was taking the Camaro on to a chop shop.
