The owner of the Honda Accord parked it while he went on his morning paper route. When he came back he found the Honda missing, this was in the Fresh Meadow section of Queens, confines of the 107 precinct. He immediately called the New York Police Department of the 107 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 Honda.
A short while later the silent signal was picked up by the Queens South Auto Larceny Unit in the Fresh Meadows section of Queens on their LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) in their vehicle. They tracked the signal to a residential section of the Fresh Meadow; there they found the Honda parked on a residential street. They decided to stake the Honda out, after a short while when no one came for the vehicle, they took it into custody. The Honda was recovered in good condition, with no damage.
The owner was contacted, and he was elated that his Honda was recovered so quickly, especially with no damage. He further stated that he was happy that when he bought the Honda it was equipped with the LoJack® System because he knew that if it wasn’t for LoJack it may never have been recovered at all.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2011 Honda Accord in January 2011 at Hillside Honda in Jamaica, New York.
