The owners of a 2016 Honda Civic contacted the Boston Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen.
The Boston PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda.
A short while later officers from the Boston PD as well as Newton, Cambridge and Watertown and the Massachusetts State Police 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 troopers tracked the Honda to the Allston section of the city and located the stolen vehicle.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Civic in August 2016 at the Herb Chambers Honda in Boston, Massachusetts.
