The owner of a 2001 Nissan Patfinder parked his vehicle on the street by his house. When he came out the next morning he found it missing. He immediately called the police of the 67 precinct, East Flatbush Brooklyn. New York Police arrived on scene and verified the theft, enterering the vehicle information into state and federal crime computers whch automatically activated the LoJack system hidden within the Nissan.
A short while later the silent and directional signal was picked up in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, confines of the 63 precinct, by officers of that precinct. They tracked the vehicle to a residential section of the precinct. There they found the vehicle unoccupied. They placed the vehicle under observation for a short while, when no one returned for the vehicle they recovered it.
The vehicle was recovered with no damage, the owner was notified, and he was elated that his vehicle was recovered so quickly.
The LoJack unit was installed at Star Nissan Bayside, NY on October of 2000.
The value of the vehicle was approximately $6500.00.
