The owners of a 1995 Honda Accord contacted the Revere Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen.
The Honda was stolen from the driveway of the owner and at the time of the theft, the vehicle was unregistered, uninsured and had no registration plate on the vehicle.
The Revere PD 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.
Twenty-three minutes later officers from the Malden Police Department 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 began tracking the Honda. The tracking was more difficult as the Honda was moving and continued to move around the city until the officers intercepted the vehicle.
Upon interception of the Honda, the officers found that the stolen vehicle had a stolen license plate attached and was occupied by four individuals. They fled the Honda but three of the individuals were arrested within minutes. The fourth individual is known to the police department and a warrant will be sought for his arrest as well.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Accord in January 1995 by Honda North in Danvers, Massachusetts.
