The owner of a 2008 Infiniti FX35 equipped with LoJack was hospitalized during a domestic battery. Police investigating the incident determined that a number of her personal items along with her Infiniti were taken in a subsequent theft from her residence in the 6400 block of S. Yale in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood. The Chicago Police Department entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Infiniti.
Fourteen minutes later officers from the Chicago PD Englewood District began picking up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Infiniti 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 Infiniti to the 6100 block of S. Wolcott Ave in Chicago’s West Englewood neighborhood. The Infiniti was recovered unoccupied at that location.
The Infiniti was recovered with some of the items taken in the theft, undamaged and taken for processing. The police investigation into this incident continues. Due to LoJack the victim’s Infiniti was recovered minutes after it was reported stolen.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Infiniti FX35 in July 2007 by Infiniti Gold Coast in Chicago, Illinois.
