On July 3, 2012, the owner of a 2011 Suzuki GSX-R 750 motorcycle contacted the San Antonio Police Department to report that their motorcycle was stolen from his home in San Antonio, Texas . The owner was alerted to the theft after receiving an Early Warning notification from the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System installed in the motorcycle.

 San Antonio Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Suzuki motorcycle.

A short while later, officers from the San Antonio Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Suzuki motorcycle on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle to the garage of a residence in San Antonio. Officers obtained verbal consent to enter the garage, where they located the stolen motorcycle. The owner of the residence was interviewed and arrested for possession of the stolen motorcycle. The motorcycle sustained only ignition damage.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Suzuki GSX-R 750 motorcycle in June of 2012 at MCTX Alamo Cycle Plex 2 in San Antonio, Texas.
