The owner of a 2006 Suzuki GSX-R600 contacted the Doral Police Department to report his motorcycle stolen.  The Doral Police Department verified the theft and had the vehicle information entered into the state and federal crime computers.  This routine action automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Suzuki.

A short while later officers from the Miami Dade Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Suzuki with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from their PTCs, the officers tracked the motorcycle to an apartment in the 12800 block of SW 10th street in Miami.  Realizing that the stolen motorcycle was in an apartment and so as not to alert the suspect the police had located the stolen motorcycle, a plainclothes officer knocked on the door to the apartment.  When the suspect opened the door, the motorcycle was seen in plain view and the suspect was taken into custody without incident.  

The LoJack® System was installed in the Suzuki GSX-R600 in October 2006 at Motorsports of Fort Lauderdale.
