The owners of a 2015 Nissan Altima reported to Sandy Springs Police their vehicle stolen. Once Sandy Springs verified the theft, then they entered the vehicle’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the hidden LoJack concealed in the Nissan.

Several Police jurisdictions picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan with the LoJack Tracking Computers (PTC’s) that are installed in their vehicles and Air Units. The vehicle was located moving three different times by agencies using their PTC’s but the vehicle fled at high speeds each time police approached. The agencies let the vehicle go instead of chasing knowing that they could track it again. The vehicle was eventually tracked by the Georgia State Patrol and located the following morning, parked and unattended in an apartment complex parking lot.  

Police recovered the stolen Nissan and returned it to its owner. With the LoJack system, installed in the vehicle the Agencies involved decided not to chase it and to track it later. This may have been a different situation had the vehicle not been equipped with LoJack.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Altima in April 2015 at Nissan of Queens, (NY).
