On Tuesday morning, August 7, 2012, the owner of a 2010 Nissan Maxima contacted the Miami Gardens Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home in Miami Gardens, Florida. The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report and theft affidavit and had the Nissan’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine police procedure automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short while later, a Miami-Dade Police Department officer, picked up the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Maxima on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking computer (PTC). Following the directional and audible cues on their PTC’s screen, a Miami Gardens Police Department officer tracked the Nissan to the 2300 block of N.W. 179th Street in Miami Gardens, Florida. There, they located the stolen vehicle beneath a car cover. The vehicle was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping, and removed from federal and state crime computer systems.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Nissan Maxima 4-door sedan on November 3, 2011 at Mercedes Benz of Miami, Miami Gardens, Florida and has been protecting it ever since.
