The owner of a 2004 Infiniti G35 lent her vehicle to her boyfriend. He had parked the Infiniti in a parking lot in the 1900 block of Military Trail. Unfortunately the boyfriend became hospitalized. When the owner responded to where the boyfriend thought he left the Infiniti it was nowhere to be found. The owner contacted the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office to report their G35 stolen. The responding deputy prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers which automatically activates the LoJack® System concealed in the Infiniti.
The next afternoon, while on routine patrol, a Palm Beach County SO deputy picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen G35 on their on-board LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC), that are installed in law enforcement patrol vehicles and aircraft. The deputy began tracking the stolen Infiniti by following the directional and audible cues on their PTC screen. The deputy, along with their backup, located the 4-door sedan parked abandoned in the 3500 block of Broadway in Riviera Beach. The Infiniti was recovered, removed from state and federal crime information computer systems by the entering agency and towed to the police impound yard for safekeeping.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2004 Infiniti G35 in December 2003 at Infiniti of Lighthouse Point in Florida.
