The owner of a 2001 Honda Accord contacted the Chicago Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the 100 block of E Randolph in Chicago’s Loop neighborhood. The Chicago PD responded to the scene and after verifying the facts entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda.
Short time later officers from the Illinois State Police picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that is installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the Illinois State Troopers discovered the Honda parked, locked and unoccupied in the 100 block of N Beaubien Ct.
The Honda was recovered undamaged before it could be stripped, cloned or used in a crime and returned to a grateful owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Accord in May 2008 by Lynnwood Honda in Edmonds, WA.
