On December 10, 2012, the owner of a 2006 Nissan Altima came out of the store he was shopping in to discover that thieves had stolen his vehicle from the store parking lot. The owner immediately contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report the crime.
Phoenix Police verified the theft and had the vehicle information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Nissan.
A short time later, the Phoenix Police helicopter began picking up the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Nissan with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in the helicopter. The flight crew began to follow the Nissan’s silent LoJack signals to the 1900 block of East Libby, where they observed the stolen Altima parked on the street. Patrol officers responded, but failed to locate any suspects at the scene. The Nissan was recovered and returned to the victim.
The LoJack Recovery System was installed in the Nissan Altima in January of 2007 by Pinnacle Nissan.
