The owners of a Honda CR-V in Miami-Dade County, FL, got a tremendous shock on a recent Tuesday morning when they discovered that the vehicle they had parked at their home the previous evening was gone. The LoJack® system that was installed when the SUV was purchased proved its worth by helping local law enforcement recover it later that same morning.

On May 27th, 2014, the Honda’s owner reported the crime to the Miami Police. 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 unit concealed in the CR-V, which was installed at Maroone Honda of Miami, FL.

Later that morning, Miami-Dade PD officers picked up the silent homing signal from the stolen SUV on the LoJack tracking computers installed in their patrol vehicles. The Honda was located near the intersection of N.W. 30th Street and N.W. 30th Avenue, where it was parked and abandoned. Police retrieved the CR-V and soon returned it to its appreciative owners.
