The owner of the Honda Civic parked her vehicle on the street where she lives and where she normally parks it. When she came out the next day she found it missing. This was in the Flushing section of Queens confines of the 109 precinct. She immediately called the New York Police Department of the 109 precinct.

While waiting for the officers to arrive the owner conducted her own investigation. It was then that she discovered that both her sets of keys were missing. She realized that her son who had apparently gone astray had stolen her Honda. When the NYPD officers arrived she relayed the facts to them and they took a written report for the stolen Honda. This information was then entered by the NYPD in the city, state and federal crime computer which automatically activated the LoJack® System in the stolen Honda.

A short while later the silent signal was picked up on the LoJack Police Tracking Computer by members of the 109 precinct. This was in the Crocethen Park section of Queens, confines of the 109 precinct. They tracked the signal to a residential area of Queens. There they located the Honda parked on the street, unoccupied and they decided to stake the vehicle out. After a short while when no one came for the Honda they took it into custody. The Honda was recovered in good condition with no damage.

The owner was contacted and she was elated that her Honda was recovered so quickly, especially with no damage. She further stated that she was happy that when she bought the Honda it was equipped with the LoJack® System stating that if it wasn’t for LoJack it may not have been recovered at all.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2009 Honda Civic in November 2011 at Hillside Honda Jamaica in Queens, New York.
