owners of a 2001 Acura Integra contacted the Cleveland Police Department to
report that their vehicle had been stolen with the keys by a known
suspect. Cleveland Police verified the
theft and entered the vehicle information
into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Acura.
A short while later officers from the Cleveland Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Acura with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to residential area of Cleveland where it was parked and unoccupied.
Because of the quick recovery the suspects did not have enough time to strip it or use it to commit additional crimes. The stolen Acura was released to the owner who had responded to the scene.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Acura Integra in February 2001 at Sterling McCall Acura, Houston, TX.
