The owner of a 2016 Toyota Camry contacted the Plano Police Dept to report that her vehicle had been stolen. The owner was visiting her boyfriend at a hotel and got involved in an argument. During the argument the boyfriend assaulted the owner, took her car keys and stole her vehicle. The owner was hospitalized. The Plano Police Dept 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.
A short while later officers from the Dallas Police Dept picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota 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 stolen Toyota to the 2300 block of North Central Expressway, where they observed it parked in a store parking lot. The boyfriend was sitting in the driver’s seat. He was arrested. The boyfriend was also in possession of a stolen handgun. The handgun was valued at $250.00. The Toyota was recovered in good condition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Camry in November of 2015 at Toyota of Plano in Plano, TX.
