The owner of a 2016 Nissan Maxima parked his vehicle on the street by his house. This was in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, confines of the 79 precinct. When he came out the next morning he found it missing. He immediately called the police of the 79 precinct. When the police arrived they verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack system conceled in the Nissan.

Once this was done the vehicle put out a silent signal that enabled the police with LoJack equipped tracking devices to track the vehicle., within a short while the signal was picked up in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, confines of the 73 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 and when no one returned to it the Nissan was recovered.

The Nissan Maxima was recovered with no damage before it could be stripped, re-tagged, cloned, or used in a crime. The owner was notified, and was elated that his vehicle was recovered so quickly.

The LoJack unit was installed at Nissan of Ozone Park Queens NY in October of 2015.

The value of the vehicle was approximately $17,500.00.
