The owners of a 2008 Honda Accord contacted the Tarrant Co SO to report their vehicle stolen.   The owners discovered their home burglarized with the suspects taking their guns, clothing, jewelry, luggage and this Honda Accord. The Tarrant Co SO verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda Accord.

A short while later detectives with the Tarrant Co Task Force picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda Accord with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the detectives tracked the stolen Honda Accord to the 5500 block of NE Loop 820 where they found it parked at a motel. 

Detectives set up surveillance and observed two suspects walk up to the stolen Honda Accord and put items in the trunk and back seat.  The suspects then got into the front seat and before they could drive off were stopped by the detectives.  Detectives found a shotgun, a rifle, jewelry, clothing and luggage in the stolen Honda Accord.  All these items were taken in the burglary.  The two suspects were arrested.  The Honda Accord was recovered in good condition.  The collateral recovery value is $1800.00. 

The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Accord in September 2007 at Vandergriff Honda in Arlington, TX.
