The owners of a classic 1991 Acura NSX contacted the Glendale Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from the garage where it was being stored. The owners advised that the rare Acura NSX was valued at over $25,000.
The Glendale PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Acura.

Troopers from the Nevada Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Acura 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 troopers tracked the Acura to the area of Tropicana and Lindell in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Nevada Highway Patrol troopers located the Acura occupied. The troopers conducted a high risk traffic stop on the Acura and took the driver into custody without further incident. The driver was arrested and booked for the possession of the stolen Acura. The Acura was recovered in good condition and impounded for safe keeping for the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Acura NSX in March 1995 by Direct Sales in Los Angeles, California.
