The owner of a 1999 Honda Civic 4-door sedan discovered their vehicle missing. The owner contacted the Hialeah Police Department to report their Honda stolen. The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers.
A short while later, a Miami-Dade Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Civic on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The PTC enables law enforcement officers to locate stolen vehicles quickly and safely. The officer began tracking the stolen Honda by following the directional and audible cues on their PTC screen. The officer, along with their backup, located the Honda abandoned in a grocery store parking lot in the 8600 block of N.W. 186th Street. The Civic was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping, and removed from federal and state crime computer systems.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 1999 Honda Civic in April 1999 at Auto Nation Honda in Hollywood, Florida.
