When the owner of a Lexus RX330 discovered that her vehicle had been stolenon the morning of February 15, 2012, she immediately reported the theft to the San Diego Police Department.  It was the police department’s routine entry of the Lexus’ information into the nationwide law enforcement stolen vehicle computer system that automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle. 

A short while later, a San Diego Police Department ground unit began to pick up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Lexus on the LoJack Police Tracking Computer installed in their patrol car.  Within forty minutes after the activation, the officers tracked the Lexus to the area near Clairmont Street and Denver Street.  The vehicle was recovered abandoned in the 4200 block of Gesner Street.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Lexus RX330 six years ago, in August 2005 by the previous owner. The current owner was happy that her vehicle had LoJack, and happier sitll when the police called her to pick up her undamaged vehicle, which she was able to drive home.
