On February 11, 2013, the owner of a 2010 Volvo C 70 contacted the 109th Precinct in Flushing, Queens to report that his Volvo was stolen from him.

When the officers arrived at the scene to take a written report, the owner stated that he had parked his car in front of the building where he was conducting business. When he returned for it a few hours later, he discovered it missing. He immediately contacted the Police of the 109th Precinct.

The officers entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Volvo.

A short while later, officers from the 109th Precinct picked up the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Volvo on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicle. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle through various streets in the confines of the 109 Precinct, eventually locating not far from where it was stolen. They decided to stake the vehicle out. After a short while without any activity around the vehicle, they took it into custody.

The vehicle was recovered in excellent condition, without any damage. The owner was notified, and was elated to learn that his vehicle was recovered so quickly, especially with no damage. He stated that it was well worth the money he spent for the LoJack when he purchased his vehicle.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2010 Volvo at Gallo Mazda/Volvo/Saturn imports in Worcester, Massachusetts.
