The owners of an Infiniti G35 parked it in the lot of their condo on a recent Saturday afternoon. When they returned a couple of hours later, the vehicle was gone. Thanks to the excellent work by local law enforcement, with help from the LoJack® system that was installed when the car was purchased, it was recovered that same day.
On May 17th, 2014, the Infiniti’s owner contacted the Miami-Dade Police Department to report their vehicle stolen. The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report and theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine police procedure automatically activated the LoJack device concealed in the G35, which was installed at Infiniti of Mission Viejo, CA.
Later in the day, Miami-Dade PD officers picked up the silent homing signal from the stolen car on their on-board LoJack tracking computers. A member of the Auto Theft Task Force also picked up the signal. The Infiniti was located on the east side of the Florida Turnpike and N.W. 195th Street in Miami Gardens, where it was parked and abandoned. Miami Gardens PD retrieved the G35, and it was soon returned to its happy owners.
