The owners of a 2007 Honda Accord contacted the Glendale Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from the parking lot of a cocktail lounge.
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 Honda.
Thirty minutes later, officers from the Phoenix Police Department and troopers from the Arizona Highway Patrol 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 officers and troopers tracked the Honda to the area of 21st Avenue and Bell Road in Phoenix.
The Phoenix PD officers found the stolen Honda unoccupied on a side street in an industrial area. The Honda was recovered in good condition and processed for evidence. The owners responded to the scene and took custody of the Honda.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Accord in December 2006 by Earnhardt Honda VW in Glendale, Arizona.
