The owner of the Nissan 270Z parked it on the street by a friend’s house that he was visiting. Several hours later when he came out he found the Nissan missing. This was in the Kew Gardens section of Queens, confines of the 107 precinct. He immediately called the New York Police Department of the 107precinct. When the police responded they took a written report for it. The NYPD 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 370Z.
A short while later the silent LoJack signal was picked up by officers of the Queens South Auto Larceny Unit. They tracked it through various streets of Flushing; eventually locating the Nissan that was parked. The officers immediately took up a position and placed the Nissan under observation. After a short while when no one came for the Nissan the officers took it into custody. The Nissan was recovered without any damage.
The owner was contacted and notified of the recovery. He was elated that his Nissan was recovered so quickly, especially with no damage.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2009 Nissan 370Z in October 2009 at Nissan of Manhattan in New York.
