On the morning of May 9, 2012, the owner of a Honda Civic DX reported the vehicle stolen to the Reedley Police Department. After verifying the theft, Reedley officers had the Honda’s information entered into the state and federal crime computer systems, which activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short time later, a Sergeant with the Dinuba Police Department began receiving the silent signal from the stolen vehicle on his patrol car’s LoJack Police Tracking Computer. Following the directional and audible signal from the LoJack Tracker, the Sergeant tracked the Honda to the parking lot of an apartment complex near downtown Dinuba. The vehicle was found intact and undamaged, in a parking space at the complex. The vehicle was recovered and released to the owner.

According to authorities, a potential suspect has been developed in this case and an arrest may occur soon.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Civic at the owner’s request in July of 1993.
