owners of a 1995 Toyota Camry contacted the Springfield Police Department to
report their vehicle stolen. The Springfield 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 troopers from the Massachusetts State Police picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, troopers tracked the vehicle to a residential address in Springfield and recovered the unoccupied stolen vehicle.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Camry in May 1995 at Toyota of Braintree in Braintree, MA.
