The owner of a 2000 Infiniti I30 reported to the New York Police Department 121 precinct that his Infiniti was stolen.  The owner parked his Infiniti where he normally parks by his house; when he went to get it the next day he found it missing. He immediately called the NYPD of the121precinct, Staten Island, NY. When the Police arrived they took a written report for his stolen Infiniti and this information was brought to the Station House.

The 121 precinct verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed on the vehicle.

A short while later officers from the New York New Jersey Port Authority Police picked up the silent signal from the stolen Infiniti on their LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. This was at the toll plaza of the Bayonne Bridge. They followed the directional and audible cues from the PTC; this was in the confines of the 121 precinct, Staten Island, in a residential area.  They found the Infiniti parked on a quiet residential street. They staked out the Infiniti for a short while, however when no one came back for the vehicle they took it into custody.

The Infiniti was recovered with no damage. The owner was notified of the recovery and was ecstatic that the Infiniti was recovered so quickly, especially with no damage. Saying that if it wasn’t for the LoJack installed on his Infiniti when he bought it, his vehicle may never have been recovered at all.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2000 Infiniti in February 2000 by LoJack Direct Sales in New Jersey.
