The owners of a 2001 Nissan Frontier pickup contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen.
The police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Nissan.
Twenty-three minutes later officers from the Phoenix 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 the Nissan to a neighborhood near 33rd Avenue and Van Buren Street, in Phoenix.
Officers located the stolen Nissan pickup unoccupied in a parking lot of an apartment complex. No suspects were observed in the area. The Nissan was recovered and processed for evidence. The Nissan was later returned to the owners in good condition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Frontier in May 2001 by ABC Nissan in Phoenix, Arizona.
