The owners of a 2010 Honda Civic contacted the Los Angeles Sheriff’s to report their vehicle stolen.  Deputies verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda Civic.

Within minutes from entry into the stolen system, officers from Monrovia Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda Civic 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 2500 block of South Mountain Ave where the vehicle was located.  A male suspect was observed inside the vehicle and apparently asleep. With the assistance of additional officers, the suspect taken into custody without further incident.

The suspect was later booked for the theft of the vehicle. The undamaged vehicle was later released to the victim.

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2010 Honda Civic in January 2013 at Sierra Auto Cars Monrovia, CA.
