The owner of a 2009 Dodge Charger contacted the Suisun City Police Department to report their vehicle stolen.  The owner advised the vehicle stolen from in front of his girlfriend’s residence. The Suisun City 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 2009 Dodge Charger.    

A short while later, investigators with the Solano County Auto Theft Task Force were working in the city of  Suisun City, when they were alerted to the stolen Dodge Charger by means of the silent LoJack signal from the stolen vehicle 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 stolen vehicle was tracked to a residential area at Pelican Way near Shrike Court, where it was found parked and unoccupied, at the curb.  Surveillance was established on the vehicle but the suspect(s) did not return.

The stolen Dodge Charger was recovered by the Solano County Auto Task Force and the owner responded to the scene to retrieve his vehicle.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2009 Dodge Charger in September 2016, at John L. Sullivan Chevrolet, in Roseville, CA.
