On December 23, 2012, the owner of 2012 Honda Accord EX discovered that his vehicle was stolen from his home in Oakland, California. Oakland Police verified the crime information and entered the Honda’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.  LoJack is the only theft recovery system that is directly operated by law enforcement and this interface is seamless and instantaneous.

A short while later, several East Bay Police agencies – including the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department, Hayward Police Department, California Highway Patrol and the Oakland Police Department – picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Honda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  The LoJack PTC provides officers with on-board information which permits them to locate the stolen vehicle quickly and with an increased margin of safety.

Alameda Sheriff’s deputies and Oakland PD officers converged on a commercial area in South Oakland. There, they located the abandoned and undamaged Honda. They quickly recovered the vehicle, valued at $31,000.

The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this vehicle on October 11, 2012 in Concord, California at Concord Honda.
