Cadillac Escalade Stolen in Selma, Recovered Two Hours and 160 Miles Away, Suspect Arrested

Print Friendly

On the afternoon of February 24, 2012, the owner of a 2005 Cadillac Escalade contacted the Selma Police Department to report the vehicle stolen. Selma Police gathered the information required to complete a stolen vehicle report and had this information entered into the California state and federal crime databases. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Cadillac.

About two hours later and 160 miles to the northwest, Alameda County Sheriff’s deputies began receiving the silent signal from the stolen vehicle on their onboard LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC). The deputies tracked the vehicle to the vicinity of Grant Line Road and I-580, in the city of Livermore. There, they stopped the occupied Cadillac and detained the adult male driver. He was later arrested for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.

The Cadillac was recovered intact and undamaged; it was stored pending release to the owner.
