On July 22, 2012, the owner of a 2006 Mazda 6 contacted the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office to report the vehicle stolen from the 8600 block of SE Causey Avenue in Happy Valley sometime after noon the previous day. Clackamas County deputies verified the theft and entered the Mazda’s VIN into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder in the vehicle.

Just ten minutes later, an officer with the Portland Police Department received the silent signal transmitting from the stolen Mazda on the LoJack Tracker installed in his patrol vehicle. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the officer located the car in the 800 block of NE 99th Avenue.  It was abandoned and did not appear to be damaged, and was returned to the owner a short time later.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Mazda 6 in February of 2006 at Premier Mazda in Milwaukie, Oregon, when it was purchased new.
