The owner of a 2015 Toyota Camry contacted the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office to report that her vehicle had been stolen. Deputies from the Sheriff’s Office verified the theft and had the vehicle information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine action automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Toyota.
Officers from the auto theft task force picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Toyota with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from their PTCs, the officers tracked the vehicle to the rear of a shopping center in the 5000 block of Okeechobee Boulevard. Officer recovered masks, gloves, a scale, and 82 grams of marijuana from the vehicle. After crime scene processing the Camry was released to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Camry in May 2015 at Palm Beach Toyota in West Palm Beach, Florida.
