The owners of a 2017 Toyota corolla contacted the Indio Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen in the city of Indio. Indio 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 Toyota.

A short while later, deputies from Riverside County Sheriff’s Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota Corolla 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 deputies tracked the vehicle to the area of Dillon and Harrison Avenue in the city of Coachella.  A traffic stop was initiated; the suspect attempted to evade the deputies but was later arrested for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Corolla in February 2017 at I-10 Toyota, Indio, California.
