The owner of a 2004 Toyota Sienna  parked his vehicle on the street by his house. This was in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn, confines of the 78 precinct. When he came out the next morning he found it missing. He immediately called the police of the 78  precinct. When the police arrived they verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack System concealed in the Toyota.

Once this was done the vehicle put out a silent and directional 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 Sunset Park section of Brooklyn, confines of the 72  precinct  on a LoJack Police Tracking Computer that are installed in police vehicles and aircreaft. The signal was tracked to a residential section of the precinct. There the vehicle was found unoccupied. The vehicle was placed under observation for a short while, when no one returned for the vehicle, it was recovered.

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 Westbury Toyota, Westbury NY in August 2004.

The value of the vehicle was approximately $10,000.00.
