The owner of a 2012 Infiniti G37 4-door sedan contacted the Margate Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen sometime during the night. In the early hours of the morning, the owner had received a phone call, text message and email from the LoJack Early Warning system advising them that their Infiniti had been moved without their authorization. The owner checked the location where their Infiniti was parked and discovered it missing. The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers.
Shortly thereafter, while on routine patrol, a Broward County Sheriff’s Office deputy picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen G37 sedan on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The deputy began tracking the stolen G37 by following the directional and audible cues on their PTC screen. The deputy, along with their backup, located the G37 abandoned in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 6000 block of S.W. 27th Avenue, Miramar. Since it was in Miramar Police Department jurisdiction, they responded and continued the investigation. The G37 was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2012 Infiniti G37 in December 2011 by Infiniti of Coconut Creek in Florida
