The owners of a Honda Accord contacted the Baton Rouge Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from a downtown casino parking lot overnight.
The Baton Rouge 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 Honda.
Fifty (50) minutes later deputies and troopers from the East Baton Rouge Sherriff’s Office and Louisiana State Police agencies 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 deputies and troopers tracked the Honda as it was driven in the Sherwood area of Baton Rouge and a felony traffic was conducted. The deputies found that the license plate on the stolen Honda was switched with a license plate that had not been reported stolen. But thanks to the LoJack® System the deputy and trooper were able to recover the stolen Honda quickly and arrested the driver for possession of stolen car and switched license plate.
The owner was reunited with their Honda Accord in great shape. The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Accord in April 2002 by Subaru of Morristown, New Jersey.
