The owners of a Chevrolet Tahoe contacted the Riverside Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen in the city of Riverside.

Riverside Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Chevrolet.

Within a short time, officers from University Of California Riverside Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet 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 vehicle to the700 block of University Drive in the city of Riverside.  A traffic stop was made; one suspect was arrested for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Tahoe in October 2011 at Wondries Ford, Alhambra, California.
