On December 21, 2012, the owner of a 2006 Nissan Sentra contacted the Portland Police Bureau to report the vehicle stolen. The Portland Police verified the theft and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.
Minutes later, a Portland Police Bureau officer received the silent signal transmitting from the stolen Nissan on the LoJack Tracker in his patrol car. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the officer located the vehicle at North Lancaster & North Lombard Street. It was abandoned and did not appear to be damaged.
The vehicle, valued at approximately $8,500, was returned to the owner.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Nissan Sentra in December of 2005 at Premier Nissan when it was purchased as a new car.
