The owner of the Toyota Venza parked her car where she normally parks it. When she went out for the Toyota the next day she found it missing; she immediately called the police of the 112 precinct, Queens, New York.
When the NYPD officers arrived, they took a written report for the stolen Toyota. This information was then entered by the NYPD in the City, State, and Federal crime computer which automatically activated the LoJack® System in the stolen Honda.

A short while later the silent LoJack signal was picked up on the LoJack Police Tracking Computer that the police have in their vehicles. This was in the Ozone Park section of Queens, confines of the 106Precinct in a residential section. The Toyota was located parked on a residential street. The officers decided to stake it out. After a short while when no one came for the Toyota the officers took it into custody. The Toyota was recovered in good condition with minor damage. In that the steering wheel was cut, consistent with the removal of a steering wheel lock, and the door lock was punched which was apparently the means of entry.

The owner was contacted and she was elated that her Toyota was recovered so quickly, especially in good condition, with minor damage. She further stated that she was happy that when she purchased the Toyota, she purchased the LoJack® System, saying she was extremely grateful for that, saying that if it wasn’t for the LoJack the Toyota may never have been recovered.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2009 Toyota Venza in June 2009 at Toyota of Hackensack, New Jersey.
