On Tuesday October 16, 2012, the owner of a 2008 Suzuki GSXR600 motorcycle contacted the Philadelphia Police to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of 4500 Robbins Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia. 

Philadelphia Police verified the theft and had the Suzuki’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the motorcycle.

A few minutes later, officers from the Philadelphia Police Department’s 22nd District picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen motorcycle on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle to the area of 2600 Arizona Street where they observed the parked, unoccupied vehicle. The vehicle was confiscated for safekeeping and the owner was notified.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Suzuki on April 22, 2011 at East Coast Cycle Center in Bensalem Pennsylvania.
