On December 12, 2012, the owners of a Honda Accord contacted the Los Angeles Police Department’s Foothill Division to report that their vehicle was stolen.  

LAPD 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.

LAPD-Mission Division patrol officers picked up the Honda’s silent LoJack homing signal on the Police Tracking Computer installed in their patrol vehicles. The vehicle was tracked to the area of Sayre Street and Herrick Avenue. The vehicle was found unoccupied and was monitored by the officers. Two suspects entered the vehicle, and drove away from the location. The officers conducted a traffic stop and took both suspects into custody for Grand Theft Auto without incident.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this vehicle on September 11, 1993 at Vista Ford Lincoln in Woodland Hills, California. The value of this recovery is $2,700.
