The owners of a 2005 Honda CBR contacted the Ogden Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. The owners had parked the motorcycle outside their residence and later found it missing.
A police officer 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, a trooper from the Utah Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.
Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the trooper tracked the Honda to the 1100 South block of Main Street in Brigham City, which is in the next county north from where it was stolen. The trooper identified the stolen motorcycle in traffic and pulled in behind it. The trooper gave a detailed description of the driver before attempting to stop the motorcycle. As the trooper activated his emergency equipment to stop the motorcycle it took off at a high rate of speed. The trooper turned off his emergency equipment and continued to follow the LoJack signal, at a safe speed, to an apartment complex where he located the motorcycle abandoned. The trooper gave the description of the driver to the local police department who very quickly located the driver walking along the road and took him into custody. The trooper then arrived and took the driver to jail and booked him for multiple charges.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda CBR in September 2005 at Cycle Center of Denton in Texas.
