On August 3, 2012, the owner of a 2011 Suzuki Motorcycle contacted the Garfield Police Department to report that his motorcycle had been stolen from in front of his home. Garfield Police verified the theft and entered the Suzuki’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the motorcycle.

Moments later, patrol officers from the Garfield Police Department and the East Rutherford Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen motorcycle on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the patrol officers tracked the vehicle to Gregory Avenue in the City of Passaic, where the East Rutherford Police Office located the Suzuki, valued at $8315.00, inside a stolen 2005 Dodge Caravan. The total recovery value was $16,600.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2011 Suzuki Motorcycle on March 8, 2012 at Bergen Sport Cycle in Lodi, New Jersey.
