The owner of a 2017 Honda Accord contacted the Reno Police Department to report their vehicle had been stolen.  The owner advised the vehicle had been taken from the parking lot of a Hotel/Casino in the 2500 block of 2nd Street. The Reno 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 2017 Honda Accord.

A short while later, officers with the Reno Police Department were alerted to the stolen Honda by means of the silent LoJack signal from the stolen vehicle. The stolen Honda Accord was then tracked with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in law enforcement patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers were able to track the stolen vehicle and it was found, parked unoccupied in the 100 block of Grove Street.

The stolen Honda Accord was recovered by the Reno Police Department and the vehicle was towed/stored for safe keeping to be returned to the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2017 Honda Accord in March of 2017, at Bill Pearce Courtesy Honda in Reno, NV.
