 The owner of a 2005 Infiniti G35contacted the Richmond City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from 4600 Southwood Parkway in Richmond, Virginia after it was left unattended with the keys in the ignition. Richmond City Police Radio dispatched an officer to investigate the incident. The officer quickly arrived on location, interviewed the complainant and surveyed the area for the subject vehicle. When the officer was unable to locate the vehicle, a stolen vehicle report was prepared. The officer then arranged for the stolen vehicle information to be entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the 2005 Infiniti G35.

A short while later, auto theft detectives from the Richmond City Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen 2005 Infiniti G35with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the detectives tracked the vehicle to the 3100 block Hull Street in Richmond, Virginia. At that location, detectives observed the vehicle parked and unoccupied. The vehicle was then recovered by police.

Approximate value of vehicle: $ 6,950.00                     

The LoJack® System was installed in the 2005 Infiniti G35during April, 2007 at Infiniti of Chantilly in Chantilly, Virginia.
