The owner of a 2008 Nissan Altima contacted the Dallas Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen. The owner went to a party at a friend’s house and when he went to leave he found his car keys and his Nissan were missing.
The Dallas 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.
Later, officers from the Dallas PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC the officers tracked the stolen Nissan and observed it traveling northbound in the 2900 block of Alaska Ave. Officers were able to stop the stolen Nissan and arrest the driver. The Nissan was recovered in good condition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Altima in March 2008 at Thornhill Nissan in Ft Worth, Texas.
