The owners of a Honda Civic contacted the Unified Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. A police officer verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda.
Later in the day a Salt Lake City Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) that was installed in his patrol vehicle.
Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC the officer alerted the Unified PD and the stolen Honda was promptly located and recovered in the 13900 block of Wild Colt Circle. It was found abandoned and later returned to the very surprised and happy owners.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Civic in 1995 in California at the request of a previous owner of the vehicle.
