The owners of a 2006 Nissan Frontier contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The owner advised that the Nissan was parked on the street with the keys, while the owner was at a residence visiting.
The Phoenix 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 Nissan.
A short while 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 residential neighborhood near 18th Drive and Sweetwater Avenue.
The stolen Nissan was observed parked at a residence. Officers made contact with the occupants of the residence and were told that an acquaintance had parked the Nissan at this location a short time earlier. The police recovered the Nissan and processed it for evidence. The Nissan was later returned to the owners in good condition. The case has been assigned to an auto theft detective to follow up on the investigative lead.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Frontier in October 2003 by United Nissan in Las Vegas, Nevada.
