On Saturday afternoon, January 7, 2012, the owner of a 2005 Honda CBR600 motorcycle contacted the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office to report the motorcycle stolen. Upon arrival at the scene, the responding officer met with the owner, who stated that the bike was stolen from where it was parked sometime between the hours of 1AM and 8AM. The officer prepared a stolen vehicle report, and had the motorcycle’s information entered into the federal and state crime computers. This routine police procedure automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Honda motorcycle.

Within minutes of activation, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper received the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda’s LoJack unit on his patrol car’s LoJack Police Tracking Computer. Following the directional and signal strength cues from the computer, the trooper, along with backup, quickly located the motorcycle, in the 400 block of Glenwood Drive in West Palm Beach. The motorcycle was recovered by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, since it was located in their jurisdiction.

The motorcycle was, released to the owner at the scene and removed from federal and state crime computer systems. The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Police Recovery System was installed in this Honda CBR600 motorcycle on January 3, 2006 and has been protecting it ever since. It should be noted that this motorcycle was stolen and recovered using LoJack once before, in June 2007.
