On September 9, 2012, the owner of a 2005 Infiniti G35 returned to home to find the residence burglarized and her vehicle stolen. She quickly contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report the crimes.

Phoenix Police verified the theft and had the Infiniti’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle. Neither the owners nor law enforcement had to do anything else to activate the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery Network because LoJack’s interface with law enforcement is both seamless and instantaneous.

Minutes later, the Phoenix Police’s helicopter “Air 3” began picking up the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Infiniti with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in the police helicopter. Following the directional and signal strength cues on the LoJack computer, the flight officers tracked the vehicle to the 4200 block of West Portland Street. There, patrol officers located the stolen vehicle, parked on the street. No suspects were located at the scene, and the Infiniti was released to the owner. The owner told the recovering officers that he wished that his other stolen property could have been LoJack-equipped.

The LoJack Recovery System was installed in the Infiniti in June of 2005 by Infiniti of Scottsdale.
