The owners of a 2010 Honda Insight contacted the Chandler Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen.
Chandler 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 Honda.
Ten minutes later, officers from the Phoenix Police Department and troopers from the Arizona Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers and troopers tracked the vehicle to the 2100 block of south Black Canyon Highway.
The Phoenix Police Department officers located the stolen Honda occupied and detained the suspect without incident. The suspect was arrested and booked for the vehicle theft. The vehicle was recovered and processed for evidence. The Honda was released to the owners in good condition at the scene.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Insight in June 2010 at Honda of Santa Monica, Santa Monica, California.
