On July 19, 2012, the owner of a 2009 Harley Davidson FLH contacted the San Joaquin Sheriff’s Department to report the motorcycle stolen from his residence. San Joaquin deputies verified the theft and had the Harley’s information entered into the California state and federal crime computer systems, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the motorcycle.

Minutes later, and almost 100 miles away, officers with the Citrus Heights Police Department and the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department both began to receive the silent LoJack signal emitting from the stolen Harley on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible signals on the LoJack computers, the officers tracked and located the parked Harley in a parking lot near Treecrest and Fairoaks Boulevards. The motorcycle was intact and had not sustained any damage. The officers had the motorcycle towed from the scene and stored until it could be released to the owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Harley Davidson at Eagle’s Nest Harley in Lathrop, California, in August of 2009. The approximate value of this motorcycle is $18,000.
