The owners of a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report their vehicle stolen from the parking lot of a restaurant.  The owner noticed that the vehicle key was missing. 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 Chevrolet.

A short while later officers from the Phoenix Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet 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 a neighborhood in the area of 80th Avenue and Elm Street. 

The Phoenix Police Department officers located the stolen Chevy unoccupied on a side street in the neighborhood.  No suspects observed with the vehicle or in the area.  The vehicle was recovered and processed for evidence.  The vehicle later returned to owners in good condition.   

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Malibu in March 2007 at Enterprise 5074, Phoenix, Arizona.
