owners of a 2009 Toyota Highlander contacted the Lawrence Police Department to
report that their vehicle was stolen. They reported that a Foster child living
in the home might have taken the vehicle without their knowledge or permission.
The Lawrence 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 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, the troopers tracked the vehicle to a residential address in Lawrence and recovered the unoccupied stolen vehicle.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Highlander in May of 2009 at Ira Toyota of Danvers, MA.
