The owner of this Honda Element discovered the vehicle was stolen during the afternoon or evening hours from the area of Fauntleroy Avenue SW & SW Rose Street. The Seattle Police Department was notified and a theft report was taken. The information was verified by Seattle PD. The vehicle information was then entered into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda.
Early the next morning, a Seattle PD officer picked up the silent LoJack® homing signals from the stolen Honda with the LoJack® Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.
Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officer was able to locate the vehicle in the 2700 block of South King Street. It was abandoned and apparently undamaged.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Element in August of 2004.
