The Acura Integra in this case was taken from Raleigh, NC, on the Fourth of July. The owners’ son had been using the car and did not inform his parents until two days later. The family searched the local area for two days after that before calling police. Even with this extensive delay, local law enforcement, assisted by the LoJack® system, were able to recover the Integra in less than two hours after activation.
On July 8th, 2013, the Acura’s owners contacted the Raleigh Police Department to report the crime. Officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. This procedure automatically activated the LoJack unit concealed in the Integra.
A short while later, officers from the Raleigh PD picked up the homing signals from the Acura on the LoJack tracking computers installed in their patrol vehicles. The officers tracked the vehicle to Ellington Street, where it was found parked and abandoned in front of a private home. The undamaged Integra was soon returned to its grateful owners and their relieved son.
