A pizza delivery driver left his Nissan Maxima running while he made a delivery at 23rd Avenue & East Jefferson Street in Seattle.
An opportunistic thief jumped in the Nissan and drove away. The theft was immediately reported to the Seattle Police Department who 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.
Later that evening, a King County Sheriff’s Office deputy picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following directional and audible cues from the PTC, the Nissan was located in the 12800 block of Petrovitsky Road south of Renton It was abandoned and undamaged. The current owner bought it as a used car and was not aware it was equipped with LoJack.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Maxima in May 2004 at Puyallup Nissan in Washington.
