On November 5, 2012, the owner of a 2010 Honda Crosstour had her house burglarized. During the burglary, the suspect took her car keys and stole her Honda out of her garage. The owner of the 2010 Honda Crosstour contacted the Richardson Police Department and reported her vehicle stolen.    

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

A short while later, officers from the Richardson Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Honda 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 a parking lot, where they found it abandoned behind a store. Witnesses gave officers a description of the suspect that parked and walked away from the stolen Honda: the description matched a known burglary suspect.  An arrest warrant is pending. This stolen Honda was recovered with no damage.    

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2010 Honda Crosstour in March of 2010 at Lute Riley Honda.
