On August 8, 2012, the owner of a 2007 Suzuki contacted the San Antonio Police Department to report that their motorcycle had been stolen from their residence in San Antonio for the second time in one week San Antonio officers 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.

A short while later, officers from the San Antonio Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Suzuki motorcycle on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle to a residential area, where the motorcycle was located inside a garage. Officers questioned the female at the residence, who admitted that her boyfriend had stored the motorcycle there sometime during the previous night. After obtaining a complete identification of the suspect, officers returned the motorcycle to the grateful owner. Charges will be filed on the suspect and a warrant of arrest obtained later.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Suzuki GSX R-600 motorcycle in January of 2009 at Woods Fun Center in Austin, Texas.
