The owner of a 2002 Toyota 4 Runner contacted the Concord Police Department to report their vehicle had been stolen. The Concord 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 2002 Toyota 4 Runner.
Shortly after the LoJack activation, an officer from the Brentwood Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota 4 Runner 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 officer tracked the stolen Toyota 4 Runner to the 5700 block of Main Street, where the vehicle was found parked in front of a towing/auto dismantling business. A check of other vehicles in front of the business lead to the identification of two additional recently stolen vehicles, a 2013 Toyota Scion XB, and a 1999 Toyota 4 Runner. Three males and a female at the business were taken into custody for possession of the stolen vehicles.
The three stolen vehicles were recovered by the Brentwood Police Department and were towed/stored for safe keeping to be returned to their respective owners.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2002 Toyota 4 Runner in October of 2002, at Auto Nation Toyota in South Austin, Texas.
