On February 12, 2012, the owner of a 2011 Honda Odyssey minivan contacted the Gwinnett County Police Department to report their van stolen from their residence. The Gwinnett County officer filed a stolen vehicle report and had the Honda Odyssey’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed within the minivan. Neither the owner nor law enforcement agents had to do anything else to activate the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery Network, because the LoJack interface with law enforcement is both seamless and instantaneous. 

A short while later, an officer with the Gwinnett County Police Department began to pick up the silent homing signal from the Odyssey’s transponder on the LoJack Police Tracking Computer installed in his patrol vehicle. Following the directional and signal strength cues on the computer, the officer tracked the stolen Honda to an industrial area of Gwinnett County. There, the officer located the minivan in a shopping mall parking lot.  

A Police Detective was called to the scene to process the minivan for prints and a possible suspect arrest.  

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Odyssey at the dealership in April 2011.
