On January 1, 2013, the owner of a Honda Accord contacted the Durham Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their daughter’s apartment complex in Durham. 

Durham 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.

A short while later, officers from the Durham Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Honda on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle to the 900 block of W. Trinity Ave, off North Duke Street. The Honda was recovered unoccupied in a small apartment complex. No ignition damage was seen, indicating that a key had been used to start the Honda.  There was damage to the front bumper area.  No witness or suspects were located at the recovery site.  The vehicle was towed at the owner’s request.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Accord on June of 1998 by the “new car” purchaser at Fairfield Honda in Pompton, New Jersey.
