This case involves a BMW 335i stolen in Norfolk, VA, on a recent Saturday. It was recovered the very same day, thanks to the excellent work of local law enforcement, with assistance from the LoJack® system that was installed when the car was purchased.
On June 21st, 2014, the BMW’s owner contacted the Norfolk Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. Officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. This action automatically activated the LoJack device concealed in the 335i, which was installed at Hall Acura and Pre Owned in Virginia Beach, VA.
A short while later, officers from the Norfolk PD picked up the silent homing signals from the stolen car on the LoJack tracking computers installed in their patrol vehicles. The BMW was located on Boush Street. A nearby suspect was taken into custody. Police retrieved the 335i and quickly returned it to its happy owners.
