On December 10, 2012, the owner of a 2008 Acura TSX contacted the Seattle Police Department to report the vehicle stolen from the 900 block of 8th Avenue sometime during the previous day.

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

A short time later, a deputy with the King County Sheriff’s Office received the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Acura on the Police Tracking Computer installed in his patrol car.  Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the deputy quickly tracked the vehicle to 7th & James in Seattle, where he located the abandoned vehicle.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Acura TSX in April of 2008 at Hinshaw’s Acura in Fife, Washington.
