The owner of a 2002 Nissan Frontier pickup truck discovered their truck missing. They contacted the Miami-Dade Police Department to report their Nissan 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, a Miami-Dade PD officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Frontier on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The officer began tracking the stolen Nissan by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The officer, along with their backup, located the pickup truck abandoned near Homestead Avenue and Fern Street west of US 1. The pickup truck 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 the 2002 Nissan Frontier in July 2002 at Maroone Nissan of Kendall in Florida.
