The owners of a 2005 Audi A6 contacted the Mesa Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen with the keys that may have been left in the vehicle.  The Mesa 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 Audi.

Thirteen minutes later the air unit and officers from the Phoenix Police Department and the Tolleson Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Audi 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 officers tracked the vehicle to the area of 71st Avenue and Van Buren Street in Phoenix. 

The Phoenix Police Department officers located the stolen Audi occupied and detained one juvenile suspect without incident.  The vehicle was recovered in good condition and processed for evidence.  The Audi was impounded for safe keeping and later released to the owners.   

The LoJack® System was installed in the Audi A6 in June 2005, at McKenna BMW Porsche Audi VW, Norwalk, California.
