The owner of a 2007 Honda Pilot was at a gas station attempting to fill their SUV with fuel when a subject approached them and demanded that they get away from the vehicle as they were going to take it. Which is exactly what happened. The owner contacted the Miramar 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 Shores Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Pilot on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The officer began tracking the stolen Honda by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The officer, along with their backup the Miami-Dade Police Department, located the sport utility vehicle abandoned parked in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 300 block of N.W. 85th Street. The SUV 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 2007 Honda Pilot in March 2009 at Maroone Honda of Hollywood in Florida.
