On November 8, 2012, the owner of a 2012 Honda Accord contacted the Newark Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen. According to the owner, he was in the middle of making a food delivery when two unknown men jumped into his vehicle and drove away. The owner also called the LoJack Customer Service Desk to advise LoJack of the theft.

The Newark 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.

A short time later, a trooper with the New Jersey State Police picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Honda on the Police Tracking Computer installed in his patrol vehicle. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the trooper tracked the vehicle to a parking lot, where the vehicle was recovered undamaged.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2012 Honda Accord on January 23, 2012 at VIP Honda (DEX) in North Plainfield, New Jersey.
