The owners of a 2008 Nissan Sentra contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the parking lot of the convenience store.  The vehicle was left running while the owner went inside the store.  The Phoenix Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Nissan.

Eight minutes later officers from the Phoenix Police Department and troopers from the Arizona Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan 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 the area of 23rd Avenue and Camelback Road. 

The Phoenix Police Department officers located the stolen Nissan occupied about seven miles from where it was stolen from.   The suspect was arrested without incident.  The Nissan was recovered in good condition and was later returned to the owners.   

The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Sentra in December 2009 at Carson Nissan, Carson, California.
