On September 1, 2012 the owner of a 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager contacted the Union City Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen from in front of his home in Union City, New Jersey.

Union City Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Grand Voyager.

A short time later, patrol officers from the Paterson Police Department had picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Plymouth on the Police Tracking Computer installed in their patrol vehicle. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the officers tracked the vehicle to Jefferson Avenue in the City of Paterson, where the vehicle was recovered, park and occupied. The occupants were in the process of burglarizing a residential building. As a result of the recovery, two people were taken into custody and charged with receiving stolen property and burglary.

The Passaic County Sheriff’s Department assisted the Paterson Police Department with the recovery.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager on January 15, 2000 at Chrysler Plymouth of Paramus in Paramus, New Jersey.
