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.
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.
