The owners of a 2002 Nissan Xterra contacted the Glendale Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen sometime overnight from their residence.

The Glendale Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Nissan.

Four minutes later, officers from the Phoenix Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan 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 vehicle to the area of 71st Avenue and Indian School Road in Phoenix. 

The Phoenix police officers located the stolen Nissan unoccupied in the parking of an apartment complex.  No suspects were observed with or near the vehicle.  The stolen Nissan was recovered and processed for evidence.  The vehicle was later returned to the owners in good condition.   

The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Xterra in February 2002 at Pinnacle Nissan, Scottsdale, Arizona.
