The owner of a 2009 Honda CR-V contacted the New York Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen while parked in their assigned parking space on Lafayette Ave in the Soundview section of the Bronx.
The NYPD 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.
A short while later, detectives assigned to the Bronx DA’s Auto Squad picked up the silent LoJack signal 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 detectives tracked and located the unoccupied Honda parked on the 800 block of Boynton Avenue in the confines of the Bronx’s 43rd Precinct. Surveillance was setup for a short time with negative results. The undamaged Honda was eventually impounded for safekeeping and later returned to a very happy owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda CR-V in June 2009 at Honda of New Rochelle in New York.
