On September 3, 2012 the owner of a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica contacted the Paterson Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen from in front of his home on East 18th Street in the City of Paterson.

Paterson Police verified the theft and entered the Chrysler’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short while later, patrol officers from three police agencies had picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Chrysler on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers from the Wayne Police Department, the Totowa Police Department and the Passaic County Sheriff’s Department tracked the vehicle to Emerson Avenue in the City of Paterson. There, they located the undamaged vehicle, parked and unoccupied.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2006 Chrysler Pacifica on November 24, 2007 at Chrysler Plymouth of Paramus in Paramus, New Jersey.
