The owners of a 2007 Infiniti M35 contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from their residence with the keys. The owner said that the keys were accidentally left in the vehicle door lock.
The Phoenix 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 Infiniti.
Twelve minutes later, the air unit and officers from the Phoenix Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Infiniti 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 tracked the vehicle to the area of 29th Avenue and Las Palmaritas Drive.
The Phoenix Police Department officers located the stolen Infiniti occupied. The driver bailed out of the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot. The suspect was apprehended and arrested. The vehicle was recovered in good condition and later returned to the owners.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Infiniti M35 in January 2007 at Miller Infiniti Van Nuys, Van Nuys, California.
