The owner of a 2009 Lexus LS460 4-door sedan parked their car in shopping center along West 49th Street. When they returned approximately two hours later, they discovered their Lexus missing. They contacted the Hialeah Police Department to report their Lexus 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.
Shortly after activation, while on routine patrol, a Miami-Dade Police Department Robbery Intradiction detective picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen LS460 on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The detective began tracking the stolen Lexus by following the directional and audible cues on the PTC screen. The detective, along with their backup, located the 4-door sedan abandoned in a parking lot in the 500 block of West 49th Street. Surveillance was established on the Lexus. After determining the facts of the case, the surveillance was terminated. Since the Lexus was in Hialeah PD jurisdiction, they responded to continue the investigation. The Lexus was recovered by the Hialeah PD, released to the owner, who responded to the scene, and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2009 Lexus LS460 in July 2009 at Lexus of Pembroke Pines in Florida.
