The owners of a 1997 Honda Accord contacted the Elizabeth Police Department to report his vehicle stolen from the parking lot of the apartment complex where he lives in Elizabeth. The Elizabeth 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 1997 Honda Accord.      

A short while later, detectives from the Elizabeth Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal coming from the stolen Honda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in squad cars and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the detectives tracked the vehicle to Bond Street in the City of Elizabeth, where the vehicle was located parked and unoccupied on the street. The vehicle was recovered undamaged.

The recovery of the Honda, led detectives to the discovery of six other stolen vehicles from the City of Elizabeth parked on the same street. Those vehicles are as listed.

  • 2000 Honda CRV
  • 1997 Honda CRV
  • 2001 Honda CRV

The LoJack® System was installed in the 1997 Honda Accord in March of 1997, at Madison Honda in Madison, N.J.
