On Tuesday morning, June 5, 2012, the owner of a 2012 BMW 328I contacted the Miami Police Department to report the vehicle stolen from their home in Miami. After verifying the theft, Miami officers had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers, which activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the BMW.

A short while later, officers with the Miami-Dade Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen BMW on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from their LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle to the 1400 block of N.W. 62nd Street. The vehicle was recovered, released to the owner, who responded to the scene, and removed from state and federal crime computer systems.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the BMW 328I on March 26, 2012 by Braman BMW in West Palm Beach, Florida and has been protecting it ever since.
