owner of a 2004 Nissan Sentra contacted the Phoenix Police Department to report
her vehicle stolen during a carjacking.
Several juvenile male suspects forced her from the vehicle and took her
cell phone along with the vehicle. 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.
A short while later officers from the Phoenix Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the vehicle to the area of 43rd Avenue and Vineyard Road. The Phoenix Police Department officers located the stolen Nissan parked in the neighborhood. The vehicle was unoccupied with no suspects observed in the area. The vehicle was recovered and processed for evidence by a detective from the Arizona Vehicle Theft Task Force. The Nissan was later returned to the owner in good condition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Sentra in October 2006 at ABC Nissan, Phoenix, Arizona.
