The owner of a 2008 Honda Accord was attending Homecoming activities at Tennessee State University in Nashville on September 30, 2012 when his vehicle was stolen. The owner quickly reported the theft to the Nashville Metro Police Department.
Nashville Police verified the theft and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Honda.
A short while later, an officer with the Goodlettsville Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signal from the Honda Accord on the Police Tracking Computer installed in his patrol vehicle. Following the directional and signal strength cues on the LoJack computer, the officer tracked the Honda to an apartment complex in Goodlettsville. The unoccupied, undamaged vehicle was recovered and impounded until it could be returned to the owner.
The Metro Nashville Police Department Auto Theft Division is conducting a follow-up investigation.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Accord on January 7, 2008 at Dobbs Honda at the time of purchase.
