The Portland, OR resident in this case got an Early Warning call from the LoJack® system when his Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat Boy motorcycle was stolen from his home. Early Warning is an enhanced version of LoJack that contacts the owner by phone, text and/or email when someone else moves their vehicle. In this case, the bike was tracked in only eight minutes after activation- and it’s not the only thing the police recovered.
On July 25th, 2013, the Fat Boy’s owner contacted Portland, OR Police immediately after receiving the Early Warning call. Officers verified the theft and entered the Harley’s VIN into the NCIC stolen vehicle database. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack device concealed in the motorcycle, which was installed at Harley Davidson of Portland, OR.
A very short time later, a Portland Police K9 unit received the homing signal from the FLSTF on the LoJack tracking computer in his patrol car. The bike was quickly tracked to a residence on SE 84th Avenue. The stolen Harley was located along with two other frames from stolen bikes and numerous other stolen parts. Two suspects at the residence were taken into custody. The undamaged Fat Boy was soon returned to its happy owner.
