The owners of a 2010 Yamaha motorcycle contacted the Secaucus Police Department to report that their motorcycle was stolen from their driveway in the City of Secaucus.
The Secaucus 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 Yamaha.
A short while later, officers from the Englewood Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal coming from the stolen Yamaha with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Yamaha to a residential area of Englewood, where the vehicle was located in the rear yard of a private home. The Yamaha was recovered undamaged along with multiple stolen vehicles and other stolen property. The owner of the residence was arrested and charged with Receiving Stolen Property and Maintaining a Chop Shop.
Also recovered were a 2007 Ford F350 Pickup, 2005 Ford E350 van and a Honda Raptor scooter.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2010 Yamaha Motorcycle in May of 2010 by Motorcycle Mall in Belleville, NJ.
