On June 25, 2012, the owner of a 2000 Nissan Quest contacted the Salem Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their residence in Salem, Massachusetts. Salem officers verified the theft and entered the Nissan’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short while later, officers from the Manchester (NH) Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Nissan on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the stolen vehicle to the intersection of Cedar and Beech Streets in Manchester. There, the officers found the vehicle unoccupied, and conducted surveillance for approximately two hours; however, when a suspect failed to return for the vehicle, they towed it from the recovery scene.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2000 Nissan Quest in October of 1999 at Kelly Nissan of Lynnfield, Massachusetts.
