The owners of a 2014 Acura TSX discovered that their vehicle had been stolen from the area it had been parked in Pennsauken, New Jersey. The Acura owner called 911 and the police communications division dispatched a Pennsauken Police Department officer to investigate. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the Acura owner and then surveyed the area for the subject vehicle. When the Acura could not be located, the assigned officer prepared a stolen vehicle report and arranged for the stolen vehicle information to be entered into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Acura.
Minutes after the LoJack tower network began to broadcast the activation code, a uniformed officer from the Camden County Police Department became aware that a signal from a LoJack equipped stolen vehicle was being broadcast within the jurisdiction of Camden County, New Jersey. The officer subsequently was able to proceed to the residential area of Merriel Street where the officer observed a parked and unoccupied vehicle matching the description of the stolen Acura. The officer approached the Acura and conducted a cursory inspection determining that this was in fact the vehicle stolen from Pennsauken, New Jersey, and that the Acura appeared to be undamaged.
The Camden County officer notified police radio of the situation and the Pennsauken PD were advised that the Acura had been located and was available to be processed for physical evidence. The Acura was confiscated by police and the owner was notified that the vehicle had been recovered.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2014 Acura TSX in September 2015 at Acura of Turnersville in New Jersey.
