On December 17, 2012, the owner of a 2007 Honda Accord LX discovered the vehicle missing, and reported the theft to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), North Sacramento Area.

CHP officers verified the theft and had the Honda’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle. Neither the owners nor law enforcement had to do anything else to activate the LoJack Vehicle Recovery Transponder because LoJack’s interface with law enforcement is both seamless and instantaneous.

A short while later, officers with the Roseville Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Honda on the Police Tracking Computer installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and signal strength cues on the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the stolen Honda to the area of the 900 block of Atlantic. There, they observed a male suspect driving the vehicle and conducted a felony traffic stop. The suspect was taken into custody without incident, arrested and booked for auto theft.

The Honda, valued at $13.575, was recovered and released to the owner at the scene.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Accord at Steve Hopkins Honda/Acura in October of 2007.
