On July 4, 2012, the owner of two motorcycles — a 2011 Suzuki GSX-R1000 valued at more than $10,000 and a 2011 Suzuki GSX-R750 valued at more than $9,000 – contacted the Frederick Police Department to report that their motorcycles were stolen from Waverly Drive in Frederick, Maryland. The owner was alerted to the theft by the LoJack Early Warning Systems that were installed in both of the motorcycles.
Frederick Police verified the theft and entered the vehicles’ information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponders concealed in the Suzukis.
A short while later, officers from the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, DC picked up the silent Lojack homing signals from the stolen Suzukis on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicles to Taylor Street NE in Washington, DC. There, the officers located the stolen Suzukis. The motorcycles were recovered by the police and returned to the owner.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery Systems were installed in the Suzuki motorcycles in March of 2012 at J.T. Motorsports in Frederick, Maryland.
