The owners of a 2010 Honda Fit contacted the Kutztown Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the area of Kutztown, Pennsylvania. The Kutztown PD dispatched a uniformed officer who quickly arrived on location, interviewed the vehicle owner and then surveyed the area for the Honda. When the officer was unable to locate the Honda, a stolen vehicle report was prepared and the information relating to same was into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda.
A short while later officers from the Bethlehem Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the signal to a residential area of Bethlehem. As the officers approached a vehicle matching the description of the stolen Honda and several persons were observed fleeing from the area. The officers positively identified the vehicle that had been tracked and recovered same. The Kutztown PD was advised that a recovery had been made and the Honda was secured. This incident remains under investigation by the Bethlehem PD.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2010 Honda Fit in July 2012 at Hillside Honda in Jamaica, New York.
