The owners of a BMW 325 contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen as a result of a carjacking and robbery in the city of San Diego.
San Diego 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 BMW.
At a later time, officers from San Diego Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen BMW 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 an apartment complex located at the 8700 block of Lake Murray Blvd. in the city of San Diego. As a result of the investigation, one suspect was arrested for carjacking, robbery and vehicle theft.
The LoJack® System was installed in the BMW 325 in March 2006 at BMW Of San Diego, San Diego, California.
