The owner of a 2003 Honda Accord 4-door sedan discovered their car missing from in front of their home. 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.

Immediately upon activation, a Miami-Dade Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Accord on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The PTC enables law enforcement officers to track, locate and recover 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 the 2000 block of S.W. 80th Court. The Honda 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 2003 Honda Accord in October 2004 at Maroone Honda in Miami, Florida.
