The owner of a 2004 Nissan Murano walked outside of her home to find that his vehicle was missing. The owner contacted the Miami-Dade Police Department to report that her 2004 Nissan Murano was stolen. The responding Officer prepared a stolen vehicle report, theft affidavit and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime information computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System transponder concealed in the vehicle. Police patrol vehicles, helicopters, and fixed wing aircraft equipped with Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) began to search for stolen vehicle.
When the silent LoJack® registered an activation alert off of the LoJack® tower in Palm Beach County, Florida a search was conducted. The silent LoJack® signals directed law enforcement to a car carrier that had a dozen crushed vehicles headed northbound on I-95. Troopers pulled over the car carrier and recovered the vehicle. Even though the vehicle had been crushed, the LoJack® device still operated as designed and led Law Enforcement right to it for a recovery. A true testament to the reliability of LoJack®. The LoJack® System was installed in the 2004 in Peachtree Nissan in Duluth, Georgia.
