The owners of a 2015 Honda Accord contacted the Antioch Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The owner advised the vehicle was taken in the overnight hours from the driveway of their residence. The Antioch Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda Accord.

A short while later, a vehicle theft investigator with the California Highway Patrol’s Investigative Services Unit was working in the unincorporated area of Bay Point, when he was directed to the stolen vehicle by the silent LoJack signal received 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 Honda Accord was tracked to McAvoy Road, where it was found unoccupied, parked on the railroad right-of -way.

The CHP investigator recovered the stolen Toyota Highlander, and the vehicle was towed and stored for safe keeping to be returned to the owner later. The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Accord in December 2014, at Winter Honda in Pittsburg, CA.
