The owner of a 2006 Infiniti FX45 contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The vehicle had been parked in the parking garage at work and the owner noticed the key fob was missing. The owner checked the parking garage and found that the Infiniti had been stolen. 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.
Twenty minutes later 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 13th Street and Fillmore Street.
The vehicle was located unoccupied on a side street in the neighborhood. The officers from the Phoenix Police Department conducted surveillance for a short period of time and did not locate any suspects. The vehicle was recovered and processed for evidence. The vehicle was returned to the owner in good condition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Infiniti FX45 in April 2007 at Infiniti of Peoria, Peoria, Arizona.
