The owner of a 2011 Toyota Camry contacted the Tulsa Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen. The owner advised the Toyota was stolen from their residence sometime during the overnight hours. The Tulsa PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Toyota Camry.
Approximately 45 minutes after the activation, officers with the Tulsa PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota Camry with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. The officer was getting fuel for his patrol car when his LoJack alerted him to the stolen Toyota.
Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officer tracked the LoJack signal to a local park. The officer located the Camry parked towards the back of the park unoccupied. It appeared the offender attempted to conceal the Camry amongst the vegetation. The officer recovered the Camry and notified the owner who responded to the scene. The Camry was returned to the owner who drove it away.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Camry in July 2010 at Route 44 Toyota in Raynham, Massachusetts.
