On January 29, 2013, the owner of a 2010 Honda Accord contacted the North Plainfield Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen. The customer told police that the vehicle was last seen parked in his driveway late the previous night.

The North Plainfield Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Honda Accord.

A short time later, a police officer from the Union County Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Honda Accord on the Police Tracking Computer installed in his patrol vehicle. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the officer tracked the vehicle to the town of Roselle Park. The officer determined that the vehicle was on the move, so he radioed for additional patrol units to assist with the track. With the assistance of the backup units, the vehicle was located and stopped.  The occupants of the Honda were arrested and charged with receiving stolen property.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2010 Honda Accord on March 24, 2010 at VIP Honda (DEX) in North Plainfield, New Jersey.
