The owner of a 2009 Cadillac Escalade contacted the Stockton Police Department to report their vehicle had been stolen. The owner advised the vehicle had been taken without permission by their roommate.
The Stockton 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 2009 Cadillac Escalade.
Shortly after the reported theft, an officer with the Stockton Police Department was alerted to the stolen Cadillac by means of the silent LoJack signal from the stolen vehicle. The stolen Cadillac was then tracked 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 stolen Cadillac was tracked to a gas station at the corner of West Charter Way and South Fresno Avenue, where it was found occupied by the named suspect. The suspect was taken into custody without incident.
The stolen Cadillac Escalade was recovered by the Stockton Police Department and the owner responded to the scene to retrieve their vehicle.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2009 Cadillac Escalade in December of 2009, at Tustin Cadillac, in Tustin, CA.
