On August 8, 2012 a LoJack customer received an “Early Warning” telephone call, informing him that his motorcycle may have been moved from where it was parked. Upon checking the location, the owner discovered that the motorcycle was missing and contacted the Clifton Police Department to report the theft.

The Clifton Police Department verified the theft and entered the Yamaha’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the motorcycle.

A short time later, patrol officers from the Passaic Police Department and the East Rutherford Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen motorcycle on the LoJack 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 a parking lot on Paulson Avenue in the City of Passaic.

The motorcycle, valued at $6,800, was recovered parked and undamaged.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2009 Yamaha Motorcycle on June 4, 2010 at Motorcycle Mall in Belleville, New Jersey.
