The owner of a 2013 Kawasaki EX 300 motorcycle contacted the Broken Arrow Police Department to report the motorcycle was stolen from a hotel parking lot in the 4900 block of W. Madison in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

The Broken Arrow PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activates the LoJack® System concealed in the stolen Kawasaki.

A short while later the Tulsa Police Department’s Air Support Flight Crew picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Kawasaki with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in patrol cars and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC the pilot and observer were able to quickly track the signal to an area in the 5200 block of W. Easton in Tulsa. The Air Crew directed several ground units into the area.

Officers from the Gilcrease Division also picked up the signal and converged on the 5200 block of W. Easton. An exact address was determined and the officers made contact with an individual at the residence and identified the Kawasaki as the one stolen. While at the scene the suspect arrived and was taken into custody by the officers.

The stolen Kawasaki was impounded until it could be returned to the rightful owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Kawasaki EX300 in November 2012 at Bert’s Mega Mall in Covina, California.
