On November 6, 2012, the owner of a Honda Civic contacted the Oklahoma City Police Department to report their vehicle stolen from the 2600 block of N. Portland Avenue. in Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma City Police Department 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. LoJack is the only theft recovery system that is directly operated by law enforcement, and this interface is seamless and instantaneous.
On November 16, an officer with the Oklahoma City Police Department’s Springlake Division picked up the silent homing signal from the stolen Honda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in his patrol vehicle. The LoJack PTC provides officers with on-board information which permits them to track and locate the stolen vehicle quickly.
Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack PTC the officer was able to quickly locate the stolen Honda in the 2600 block of N. Walnut. This $4,400 vehicle was found parked and abandoned and was quickly returned to the owner in good working condition.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda on October 30, 1997 at Maroone Honda in Miami, Florida.
