owners of a Nissan Sentra contacted the Brighton PD to report that their
vehicle had been stolen by an acquaintance. A police officer 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.
Three minutes later officers with the Brighton PD picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Nissan with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from their PTCs, the officers quickly tracked and located the stolen vehicle and the suspect in the 600 block of Jessup. The offender was arrested before the vehicle could be used in other crimes and the owners called to the scene to recover their vehicle.
The vehicle theft report was then canceled, which automatically shuts off the LoJack signals, all in less than 20-minutes – entry to cancellation.
The LoJack® System was installed in June 2007 at Midway Nissan, Phoenix, Arizona at the request of the current owners of the car.
