The owner of a 2017 Kia Forte contacted the California Highway Patrol to report that their vehicle had been stolen.  The owner advised the vehicle was taken from their apartment complex in the 5500 block of Sky Parkway in the unincorporated area of South Sacramento.

The California Highway Patrol verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the 2017 Kia Forte.
A short time later, a Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy on patrol was alerted to the stolen Kia Forte by means of the silent LoJack signal from the stolen vehicle 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 Kia was tracked and was found parked, unoccupied at the curb on Chriswood Court off of Robinette Road.

The stolen Kia Forte was recovered by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and the vehicle was released to the owner at the scene.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2017 Kia Forte in February of 2018, at Enterprise Car Sales, in Rancho Cordova, CA.
