The owner of the Nissan Pathfinder parked her vehicle where she normally parks it. When she came out for the Nissan the next day she found it missing. This was in the Laurelton section of Queens, confines of the 113 precinct. She immediately called the New York Police Department of the 113 precinct to report the theft.
When the police arrived they took a written report for the theft. 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.
A short while later the silent LoJack signal was picked up by the Queens South Auto Larceny Unit on their LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in their vehicle, in the Jamaica section of Queens, confines of the 103 precinct. They tracked the signal to a residential section of Jamaica. There they found the Nissan parked and unoccupied. They staked the Nissan for a short while, when no one came for it they took the vehicle into custody.
The owner was contacted and she was elated that her Nissan was recovered so quickly, especially with no damage. She further stated that she was happy that when she bought the Nissan it was equipped with the LoJack® System because she knew that if it wasn’t for LoJack it may never have been recovered at all.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2003 Nissan Pathfinder in October 2003 at Baron Nissan Peugeot in Greenvale, New York.
