The owner of a 2016 Toyota Camry contacted the Roseville Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The owner advised the vehicle was taken from an apartment complex when the vehicle was left running and unattended while they made a package delivery. The Roseville 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 2016 Toyota Camry.

A short while after the LoJack activation, an investigator from the Roseville Police Department, who is assigned to the Placer County Regional Auto Theft Task Force began receiving the LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota Camry 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 investigator tracked the stolen vehicle to the parking lot of a shopping mall on Roseville Parkway and found the vehicle unoccupied.  Investigators from the auto theft task force established surveillance on the stolen vehicle, but the suspect(s) did not return.  

The stolen 2016 Toyota Camry was recovered by the task force investigators and the owner responded to the scene to retrieve their vehicle.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2016 Toyota Camry in January 2016, at Roseville Toyota, in Roseville, CA.
