On November 27, 2012, the owner of a 2006 Honda CBR600 motorcycle contacted the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office to report that their vehicle was stolen from the parking lot of his apartment complex in Jacksonville.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office 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 motorcycle.

A short while later, officers from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office 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 private residence approximately 3 miles from the theft location.

The signal from the Honda was emanating from the garage attached to the residence. Detectives from the Auto Theft Unit were called to the scene. After obtaining permission to enter the garage from the home owner, they observed the stolen Honda, along with a second 2006 Honda CBR and a 2007 Suzuki GSX-R600, both of which were also stolen  the same date as the Honda. All three motorcycles were stolen from within one mile of each other. Two arrests were made at the location.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda CBR600 in August of 2006 at Cycle Riders in Orlando, Florida.
