The owners of a used car dealership called the Elizabeth Police Department to report two vehicles stolen from their lot during the overnight in the City of Elizabeth. One of the vehicles a 2015 Maserati Ghibli was equipped with a LoJack® Tacking System. The Elizabeth Township 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 2015 Maserati Ghibli.      

A short while later officers from the Essex County Sheriff’s Department picked up the silent LoJack signal coming from the stolen Maserati with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) installed in their patrol vehicles.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to South 16th Street in the City of Newark, where the vehicle was located parked and unoccupied. The vehicle was recovered undamaged.  

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2015 Maserati Ghibli in February 2019 at Supreme Motor Sports in New Jersey.
