LoJack® System Helps Florida Highway Patrol Recover a Stolen 2004 Nissan Murano

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.
