This Acura RSX was stolen during the night from the owner’s apartment complex located in the 2500 block of 62nd Avenue East in Fife. When the owner discovered the theft the next morning he immediately reported it to the Fife Police Department who verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. That process automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Acura.
Less than one hour later, a Washington State Patrol Cessna, flying over Pierce County, picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Acura on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. The location was related to agencies on the ground. A Fife PD officer was also tracking the Acura and found it abandoned in the 3300 block of 7th Avenue East. It did not appear to be damaged.
The Acura was processed for evidence and released to the owner who purchased it as a used car and was not aware it was equipped with LoJack.
The LoJack® System was installed in this Acura RSX in June 2005 at Cush Acura in Escondido, California.
