In August 2018, the owner of a 2007 Harley Davidson FLT motorcycle contacted the Wake County Sheriff’s Office in Raleigh, NC to report that their vehicle had been stolen after it was discovered missing from the residence.
The Wake County Sheriff’s Office verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Harley Davidson.
After the motorcycle was entered into the national crime computer, an Officer with the Raleigh Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Harley Davidson 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 Officer tracked the vehicle to a residence. The Officer discovered the motorcycle loaded onto a trailer and covered by a tarp. It was also discovered that the trailer was stolen as well. After the preliminary investigation, the owner of the residence where the stolen motorcycle and trailer were located was charged with Possession of Stolen property. Both the Harley Davidson and the trailer were recovered and returned to the owners.
The LoJack® System was installed in the June 2011 at Ray Price Harley-Davidson/Buell, Inc., Raleigh, NC
