The owner of a Honda Civic contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen in the city of San Diego.
The San Diego PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda Civic.
Within 34 minutes, officers from the San Diego PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda Civic DX 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 officers tracked the Honda to a trailer park located at the 1300 block of Morena Blvd. Further investigation revealed that a male and a female were inside a motorhome that was parked next to the Honda. The male suspect was arrested and taken into custody for vehicle theft and the female for warrants.
The Honda was recovered undamaged.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Civic DX in June 2000 at Tipton Honda in El Cajon, California.
