The owners of a 2008 Nissan Titan contacted the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen with the keys from their residence.
The Maricopa County SD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Nissan.
Eleven minutes later, deputies from the Maricopa County SD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan 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 deputies tracked the Nissan to a remote neighborhood near 211th Avenue and Bradley Road in Wittmann.
The Nissan was found unoccupied, parked on a side street in the neighborhood and recovered. The Maricopa County SD crime lab technician responded to the scene and processed the Nissan for evidence. The Nissan was later returned to the owners in good condition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Titan in January 2008 at Midway Nissan in Phoenix, Arizona.
