The owners of a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado contacted the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen in the city of El Cajon.
San Diego County Sheriff’s 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.
At a later time, deputies from San Diego County Sheriff’s 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 deputies tracked the vehicle to the 1300 block of Lindewood Drive in the city of El Cajon. 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 Silverado in February 2010 at De Lillo Chevrolet, Huntington Beach, California.
