Phoenix Police confirmed the theft and entered the vehicle’s information into the state and federal crime computers. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short time later, Phoenix Police officers from the Cactus Park Precinct began picking up the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Yukon with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their police vehicles. Officers tracked the Yukon to a local gas station and noticed one suspect was currently in the vehicle. Officers moved in and safely arrested the suspect. Also recovered were various items taken in the burglary.
