The owner of a 2014 Toyota Scion contacted the Prince William County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 12700 Gazebo Court in the Woodbridge area of Prince William County, Virginia. Prince William County Sheriff’s Radio dispatched a deputy to investigate the incident. The deputy quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the subject vehicle. When the deputy was unable to locate the vehicle, a stolen vehicle report was prepared. The deputy then arranged for the stolen vehicle information to be entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the 2014 Toyota Scion.
Within minutes, deputies from the Prince William County Sheriff’s Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen 2014 Toyota Scion 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 Still Forest Drive in the Woodbridge area of Prince William County, Virginia. At this location, officers observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. The undamaged vehicle was recovered and the owner notified.
Approximate value of vehicle: $10,625.00
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2014 Toyota Scion in April, 2014 at Heritage Toyota in Catonsville, Maryland.
