The owner of a 1999 Acura Integra contacted the Tulsa Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen. The Tulsa PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Acura Integra.
Shortly after the activation, officers with the Tulsa PD Police One helicopter picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Acura Integra with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. The flight officers advised ground units they were picking up the LoJack signal in the area of E Pine Street and N Peoria Avenue. Officers began to saturate the area in an attempt to locate the stolen Acura.
Police One obtained visual surveillance of the stolen Acura and gave this information to the officers on the ground. One officer observed the stolen Acura and initiated a traffic stop. Officers made contact with the driver and he was taken into custody. The driver was subsequently booked for possession of a stolen vehicle. The owner was advised of the recovery and responded to the scene to take possession of his Acura.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Acura Integra in September 1999 at Acura of Boston in Brighton, Massachusetts.
