The owner of a 2006 Suzuki GSX-R600 discovered their motorcycle missing. They contacted the Sunny Isles Beach Police Department to report their Suzuki 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 morning, while on routine patrol, a Miami-Dade Police Department pilot picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen GSX-R600 motorcycle on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The pilot began tracking the stolen Suzuki by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The pilot directed Hialeah Police Department officers to where they believed the motorcycle was located. The officers checked a couple of carports and located the motorcycle. When they knocked on the door of the house where they located the motorcycle, the occupant opened the door, whereupon the officers observed another motorcycle. The officers gained permission to enter the house. The officers queried the vehicle identification number of the 2006 Yamaha YZF-R6 motorcycle and discovered that it too was stolen. The officers recovered both motorcycles, had them 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 2006 Suzuki GSX-R600 motorcycle in April 2006 at Motorsports of Fort Lauderdale in Florida.
