In the early hours of Wednesday morning, August 1, 2012, the owner of a 2006 Honda CBR600 motorcycle discovered his motorcycle missing from where he parked it at his home in Cooper City, Florida. Police verified the theft and had the Honda’s motorcycle entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the motorcycle.

A short while later, a Pembroke Pines Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Honda on his on-board LoJack Police Tracking computer (PTC). Following the directional and audible cues on their PTC’s screen, the officer, along with backup, located the vehicle in a residential area in the 7800 block of Johnson Street in Pembroke Pines.

The vehicle had driver’s side damage and its mirror missing. The officers recovered the vehicle, had it towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping, and had it removed from the federal and state crime computer systems.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda CBR600 motorcycle on September 1, 2006 at Rick Case Cycles in Davie, Florida, and has been protecting it ever since.
