On February 25, 2013, the owner of a 2004 Honda Accord contacted the New York Police Department’s 109 Precinct in Flushing, Queens to report the vehicle stolen.

When officers arrived at the scene, they took a written report.  According to the owner, he had parked the Honda in front of his residence overnight, and when he returned for it the next day, discovered it missing. After verifying the theft, the officers 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 NYPD’s 109th Precinct picked up the silent LoJack homing signal from the stolen Accord 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 109th Precinct. They eventually located the abandoned vehicle in the College Point section of Queens. They decided to stake the vehicle out, but after a short while without any activity around the vehicle, they took it into custody.

The Honda 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 2004 Honda Accord on October 4, 2004 at Paragon Acura in Woodside, New York.
