The owner of a 2013 Honda Accord contacted the Lower South Hampton Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from a convenience store parking lot in Feasterville. The keys were in the vehicle when it was stolen.

The Lower South Hampton Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the 2013 Honda Accord.

A short while later officers from the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department picked up the silent LoJack signal coming from the stolen Honda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their  patrol vehicles.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to a Honda Dealership parking lot in Bridgewater, New Jersey.  The Honda had a fictitious license plate and the vehicle identification number was covered in an attempt to hide the vehicles true identity. The vehicle was recovered undamaged. The investigation is continuing.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2013 Honda Accord in April of 2013, at Sloane Honda in Philadelphia, PA.
