The owner of a 2001 Honda CRV sport utility vehicle discovered their SUV missing. They contacted the Miami-Dade Police Department to report their vehicle stolen. The responding officer prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers.
Immediately upon activation, while on routine patrol, a Miami-Dade PD Robbery Interdiction Detail (R.I.D.) detective picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda CRV on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The detective began tracking the stolen Honda by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The detective, along with their backup, located the sport utility vehicle near N.W. 51st Terrace and N.W. 33rd Avenue. They established surveillance on the Honda. After several hours the surveillance was terminated with negative results. The sport utility vehicle was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.
The LoJack® System was installed in the2001 Honda CRV in September 2001 at Maroone Honda of Miami, Florida.
