During the early morning hours of February 2, 2013, the owners of a Honda Accord discovered their car stolen from their residence in Millcreek, Utah. The owners immediately contacted the Unified Police Department, where a report was filed.  Unified Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the Utah State and Federal crime computers, which automatically sends out a silent signal throughout the LoJack Tower Network to activate the LoJack transponder concealed in the Honda Accord.

A short while later, an officer with the Unified Police Department began picking up the silent LoJack signal coming from the Honda on the Police Tracking Computer installed in his police vehicle.

Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officer tracked the vehicle into the nearby city of Murray, where police found the vehicle abandoned, reportedly intact.

The Honda Accord was recovered only 97 minutes after being activated by the Unified Police Department. This same car was stolen and recovered twice before using LoJack trackers; once in Englewood California on October 31, 2001 and again in Salt Lake City on May 4, 2011.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed on January 3, 2001 at Miller Honda of Culver City, California.
