The owner of a 2006 Mercedes Benz ML 500 contacted the Hayward Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The Hayward 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 2006 Mercedes Benz ML 500.
A short while
after the LoJack activation, a Union City Police Officer was alerted to the
stolen Mercedes Benz by means of the silent LoJack signal from the stolen
vehicle 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 stolen vehicle was tracked to an apartment complex at Bridgepointe Place
near Lowry Road, where the vehicle was found parked unoccupied in a parking space.
This was the second theft recovery of his vehicle by Union City PD by means of
the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery system in the past three years.
The stolen Mercedes Benz was recovered by Union City PD and the vehicle was towed/stored to be returned to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2006 Mercedes Benz ML 500 in October 2006, at Mercedes Benz of South Bay, in Torrance, Ca.
