A 2005 Dodge Neon went missing sometime between April 28th and May 7th from the 200 block of North French Avenue in Arlington.  After extensive searching by the owner, the owner determined that the vehicle had been stolen, and reported the crime to the Arlington Police Department.

Arlington Police prepared a vehicle theft report and had the stolen Neon’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle, prompting it to begin emitting a silent homing signal. Neither the owner nor law enforcement agents had to do anything else to activate the LoJack Vehicle Recovery Network, as LoJack’s interface with the police is both seamless and instantaneous.

Minutes later, Arlington Police officers began to pick up the Neon’s silent homing signal on the Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in their patrol vehicle. Following the directional and signal strength cues on the PTC, the officers quickly located the stolen car in the 6900 block of 191st Street NE in Arlington.  The car was abandoned and did not appear to be damaged 

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Neon on February of 2005 when it was purchased new.
