In the early evening of November 16, 2012, the owner of a 2011 Honda Civic Del Sol contacted the Quincy, MA Police Department to report that the vehicle was missing from where it was parked that morning.

The Quincy 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 Quincy, State Police and Braintree Police Departments picked up the Honda’s silent LoJack homing signals on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. A Braintree officer, who was at the scene of a prior traffic accident, began picking up the Honda’s directional and audible cues from his LoJack computer. As soon as he cleared the accident scene, the officer quickly located the abandoned stolen vehicle in a parking lot behind various businesses on Washington Street in Braintree. The officer had the stolen Honda towed from the scene for safekeeping until the Quincy Police Department could notify the owner of the recovery.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2011Honda Civic on January 4, 2011 at the Herb Chambers Honda Dealership in Seekonk, Massachusetts.
