The owner of a 2013 Nissan Sentra contacted the Pembroke Pines Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen.  The Pembroke Pines Police verified the theft and had the vehicle information entered into the state and federal crime computers.  This routine action automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Nissan.

A short while later officers from the auto theft task force and the Opa-Locka Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Nissan with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from their PTCs, the officers tracked the vehicle to 14900 block of NW 22nd court. The vehicle was recovered and returned to the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Sentra in January of 2013 at Royal Palm Nissan, in West Palm Beach, Florida.
