The owner of a 2008 Toyota Sienna called the New York City Police Department to report his vehicle stolen. He had parked his car where he usually parks it by his house. When he came out the next day, he found it missing. This was in the 105th precinct, Queens Village NY. He immediately reported the theft to the 105th precinct. Officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Toyota Sienna. This was done both seamlessly and automatically without any additional notifications.

After a short while officers from the Bronx Auto Larceny Unit in the Bronx NY, confines of the 49 precinct picked up the audible and directional signals on their Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in squad cars and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the moving vehicle through various streets in the confines of the Bronx. Eventually they were able to safely stop the vehicle and immediately took the suspect into custody without incident.”

The owner was notified and was elated that his vehicle was recovered so quickly, and without damage. Saying he was grateful that when he bought his vehicle the LoJack unit was previously installed.

The LoJack unit was installed in the Toyota Sienna in May 2010 at Teddy Nissan Bronx, N.Y.

The value of the Nissan was approximately $7800.00
