The owner of a 2007 Toyota Camry contacted the Oklahoma City Police Department to report his vehicle stolen.  The owner advised he left the Toyota in a store parking lot unattended with the engine running.  When the owner returned to the Toyota, he discovered it was no longer in the parking lot.  The Oklahoma City PD 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 Camry.

Approximately forty-five minutes after the activation, officers with the Oklahoma City PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the silent and directional cues from the PTC, the Toyota was tracked and found to be occupied.  Contact was made with the driver and she was taken into custody.  The female subject advised the officers she was tired of walking when she saw the Toyota with the engine running.  The female subject did not see anyone in the Toyota and decided to take a ride rather than a walk.  The Toyota was recovered and will be released back to the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Camry in April 2007 at Vandergriff Toyota in Arlington, Texas.
