The owners of a 2009 Nissan Maxima contacted the New York Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen while parked near their residence on the 500 block of Southern Blvd, located in the confines of the Bronx’s 40th Precinct.
The NYPD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers (NYSPIN/ NCIC) which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Nissan.
A short while later, officers assigned to the Suffolk County Police Department, picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan 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 and located the unoccupied Nissan parked in a commercial district on Edison Ave in West Babylon, NY, in the confines of the Suffolk PD’s 1st Precinct. The undamaged Nissan was immediately impounded for safekeeping and later returned to a very happy owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Maxima in February 2010 at Honda Gallery in Reading, Massachusetts.
