The owners of a Toyota Tundra contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen with the keys.  The owner lost the keys while in the bank and grocery store.  The Phoenix 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.

Thirty minutes later officers from the Phoenix Police Department 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, the officers tracked the vehicle to the area of 19th Avenue and Camelback Road.   

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

The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Tundra in December 1999, at Toyota of El Cajon, El Cajon, California.
