The owner of a 2015 Honda Civic contacted the Emeryville Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen.  The owner advised the vehicle was taken from the parking lot of their apartment complex in the 1000 block of 46th Street.  The Emeryville 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 time later, an Oakland Police officer was alerted to the stolen Honda Civic by means of the silent LoJack signal from the stolen vehicle 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 was found parked, unoccupied at the curb in the 400 block of 42nd Street.

The stolen Honda Civic was recovered by the Oakland Police Department and the vehicle was towed and stored for safe keeping, to be returned to the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2015 Honda Civic in August of 2018, at Berkeley Honda, in Berkeley, CA.
