The owner of a 2001 Honda CR-V parked his vehicle on the street by his house where he lives. When he came out for it the next morning he found it missing.This was in Sunset Park section of Brooklyn, confines of the 72 precinct.. He immediately called the police of the 72 precinct. When the police arrived they verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into federal and state crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda. This was done seamlessly without any further notifications to anyone.
Within a short while the silent and directional signal was picked up in the Sunset park section of Brooklyn, by members of the 72 precinct with the LoJack Police Tracking computers which are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. These officers following th cues from the stolen Honda tracked the vehicle to a residential section of the 67 precinct., which is several precincts away. There they found the vehicle unoccupied. They staked the vehicle out for a short while, when no one returned for the vehicle, they recovered the stolen Honda.
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 in the Honda in September 2001 at Bay Ridge Honda/Volvo in Bayridge, Brooklyn.
The value of the vehicle was approximately $5500.00.
