The owners of a 2008 Audi Q7 contacted the San Diego Police Department to report their vehicle stolen in the city of San Diego. San Diego 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.

Within four minutes, deputies from San Diego County Sheriff’s 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 deputies tracked the vehicle to the 8000 block of Lemon Grove Way in the city of Lemon Grove.  Five juveniles were detained and arrested for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.

The Audi stolen in 2015 was tracked and recovered by Rialto PD.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Audi in June 2008 at Miramar Volkswagen, San Diego, California.
