The owner of a 2015 Honda Civic contacted the Reno Police Department to report their vehicle had been stolen. The owner advised the vehicle had been taken from in front of their residence in the 1100 block of Nyala Street in the overnight hours.
The Reno 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 2015 Honda Civic.
A short while later, an officer with the Nevada Highway Patrol was travelling on I-80 in Sparks, when he was alerted to the stolen Honda Civic by means of the silent LoJack signal from the stolen vehicle. The officer tracked 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 stolen vehicle was tracked and located, parked unoccupied in a residential neighborhood in the 1900 block of “G” Street.
The stolen Honda Civic was recovered by the Nevada Highway Patrol and the vehicle was released to the owner at the scene.
The LoJack® System was installed in the 2015 Honda Civic of 2016, at Bill Pearce Courtesy Honda, in Reno, Nevada.
