The owners of a 2008 Nissan Titan pickup contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the driveway of their residence.
The Phoenix 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 Nissan.
Four minutes later, troopers from the Arizona Highway Patrol 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 troopers tracked the Nissan to a neighborhood just east of Interstate 17, near 21st Avenue and Orangewood Avenue in Phoenix.
The Nissan was located unoccupied on a side street in the neighborhood. The Phoenix PD officers responded and recovered the stolen Nissan. The Phoenix PD officers conducted follow up investigation in the area and developed an investigative lead on a possible suspect. The Nissan was processed for evidence and returned to the owners in good condition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Titan in January 2008 at West Valley Nissan in Glendale, Arizona.
