This motorcycle was stolen from an apartment complex parking lot located in on SW Fischer Road near Tigard. It was taken sometime between the late evening to early morning hours. When the theft was discovered it was reported to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office who verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the motorcycle.
Just over one hour after activating the LoJack, a Portland Police Bureau officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the Yamaha motorcycle with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.
Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officer tracked the bike to NE Morris Street & NE 111th Drive. The suspect on the bike was placed under arrest and booked into jail. Further examination of the bike revealed the vehicle identification number on the frame had been altered in an attempt to conceal its identity.
The LoJack® System was installed in this Yamaha motorcycle in September 2007 at Beaverton Honda Yamaha in Beaverton, Oregon.
