The owner of a 2006 Honda CBR 1000RR motorcycle contacted the Jupiter Police Department to report that their motorcycle was stolen. The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the motorcycle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers.
While on routine patrol a Hialeah Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen CBR 1000RR motorcycle on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The officer began tracking the stolen motorcycle by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The officer, along with their backup, located the area where the stolen motorcycles signal was emanating from. Other officers responded to the area as well and checked the houses in the area. The detectives on the scene observed a subject drive away from the suspected house. The detectives had a marked patrol car stop the car and detain the subject. The detectives ascertained permission to search the property. They located the stolen LoJack equipped motorcycle along with a 2012 Honda CBR 600RR motorcycle stolen out of West Palm Beach, a 2008 Honda CBR 1000RR motorcycle stolen out of Hialeah and a 2012 Suzuki GSX-R600 motorcycle stolen out of Port St Lucie. The motorcycles were recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems. The subject now became the suspect and was arrested for four counts of Grand Theft Auto for the four motorcycles recovered.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2006 Honda CBR 1000RR motorcycle in July 2006 at Motorsports of Fort Lauderdale in Florida.
