The owner of a 2006 Nissan Frontier pickup truck parked their pickup truck at their house one night, leaving the key in the ignition and the doors unlocked. The next morning they discovered their truck missing. They contacted the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office 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.
Later that afternoon, while on routine patrol, a Jacksonville SO 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 in the 1000 block of Ellis Road North. The truck was recovered in good condition without the key, released to the owner, who responded to the scene, and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2006 Nissan Frontier in October 2009 at Sloane Toyota of Malvern in Pennsylvania.
