The owner of a 2007 Honda CBR600RR motorcycle rode their motorcycle to work and parked it in the parking lot. At the end of the day they left work and discovered their motorcycle missing. They contacted the Hialeah Police Department to report their vehicle 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.
The next morning, while on routine patrol, a North Miami Police Department officer picked up the silent LoJack signal emanating from the stolen CBR600RR motorcycle on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC). The officer began tracking the stolen vehicle by following the directional and audible cues on their PTC’s screen. The officer tracked it into the City of Miami, to an area between N.E. 7th Avenue and N.E. 8th Court and between N.E 82nd Street and N.E. 81st Street. The rest of the officer’s crime suppression team squad members responded to the area as well. After a slow drive on the street that were able to pinpoint the house where the motorcycle was located. It was either behind a particular house on N.E. 81st Street or one on N.E. 82nd Street. The officers knocked on the door of a house in the 700 block of N.E. 81st Street and were granted permission to go through the house to the backyard. Upon exited the house the officers discovered the motorcycle to the left of the exit. The officers asked the owner of the house if they knew anything about when or how the motorcycle got there. The owner called her husband who explained that he discovered it in front of his house before he left for work and thought that it might be one of his neighbors, so he secured it in his backyard. Since the vehicle was located in the City of Miami, the Miami Police Department responded to the scene to recover the vehicle. The 2007 Honda CBR600RR motorcycle was recovered, towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping, and removed from state and federal crime information computer systems.
