The owner of a 2007 Honda Odyssey reported to the New York Police Department, 49 precinct Bronx, NY, that his vehicle was stolen from him. The details are as follows.

The owner parked his Honda near his house where he normally parks it, when he went out for it he found it missing.  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.

A short while later, officers from the Bronx Auto Larceny Unit picked up the silent signal from the LoJack® System installed on the Honda on their LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. They followed the directional and audible cues from the PTC. This was in the confines of the 48 precinct Bronx, NY. They tracked the signal into a residential area of the Bronx where they narrowed the signal down to the moving Honda.  They followed the moving Honda, when they attempted to stop him he fled, with the officers in pursuit. The male eventually abandoned the Honda, fled into a wooded area eluding the police.  However a search of the Honda revealed that he left some information that possibly will lead to his arrest.

The Honda was recovered with minor damage, other than that it was in good condition. The owner was notified and he stated that he was happy that he had the LoJack® System installed on his Honda when he bought it, otherwise it may not have been recovered at all.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2007 Honda Odyssey was installed in December 2007 by Honda of New Rochelle in New York.
