On Wednesday November 7, 2012, the owner of a 2006 Suzuki GSXR750 motorcycle discovered the bike stolen from the area around his residence in the 300 block of N. 15th Street in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The vehicle owner called 911 and Allentown Police Radio dispatched an officer to investigate the incident.

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

A short while later, the members of the Lehigh County Auto Theft Task Force – highly trained auto theft investigators – picked up the motorcycle’s silent LoJack homing signals on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their police vehicles. The investigators fanned out across the city of Allentown and conducted a LoJack electronic sweep of the area. Following the audible and visual information displayed on the LoJack Tracking Computers, the investigators located the stolen motorcycle, parked in a rear alley in the area of 200 Perry Street. The investigators set up surveillance on the motorcycle, but were not able to locate any suspects. This incident remains under investigation by the members of the Lehigh County Auto Theft Task Force.           

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Suzuki GSXR 750 on July 17, 2006 at Cycle Design in Phillipston, Massachusetts.
