During the early hours of the morning, the owner of a 2008 Honda CBR1000RR motorcycle received a LoJack Early Warning alert that someone had moved his motorcycle without their authorization from their parking space in their apartment complex parking lot. The owner checked the location where their motorcycle was parked and discovered it missing. The owner contacted the Coconut Creek Police Department to report that their motorcycle was stolen sometime during the night. 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.
A Broward County Sheriff’s Office deputy on routine patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen CBR1000RR motorcycle on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The deputy began tracking the stolen motorcycle by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The deputy, along with their backup, located the area where the stolen motorcycle was parked. Other units responded to the scene to back up the deputies. A district detective responded and continued the investigation. The detective was given consent to search the area in question and discovered 3 motorcycles. All three were confiscated. One was the LoJack equipped motorcycle, another was a 2012 Honda CBR600RR and the third had its identification removed. The motorcycle was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2008 Honda CBR1000RR motorcycle in March 2008 at Champions Honda Kawasaki in Cocoa, Florida.
