On February 12, 2013, the owner of a 2006 Kawasaki ZX636 motorcycle contacted the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office to report that the bike was stolen from his home in Pelser, SC. The owner was alerted to the theft after receiving an Early Warning notification from the LoJack Vehicle Recovery System that the bike had been moved.

Anderson County Deputies verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Kawasaki.

A short while later, deputies from the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Kawasaki on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the deputies tracked the vehicle to a tire business in the town of Pelser. The motorcycle was found already repainted, but otherwise undamaged and intact. An employee of the business was arrested at the time of the recovery. The investigation is continuing.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the2006 Kawasaki on July 28, 2006 at Metro Motorsports in Glendale, Arizona.
