On February 8, 2013, the owner of a 2000 Honda Civic Del Sol contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from the city of San Diego.

San Diego Police 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.

Within minutes, officers from the San Diego Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Honda Civic 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 a residential area at the 3800 block of Camino Aguar in San Diego.  The officers arrested two suspects who were observed in the vehicle.

The owner was very happy when San Diego Police contacted him to advise that the vehicle, valued t $6,100, was recovered undamaged.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Civic Del Sol on April 15, 2000 at Poway Honda in Poway, California.
