Westwood, MA - October 22, 2010 - On October 18, 2010, Tennessee Titans’ Defensive Tackle Jovan Haye took his 2010 Land Rover into a dealership to be serviced. While it was in a bay, the Land Rover was stolen. After discovering the vehicle was stolen, the theft was reported to local police, who entered the vehicle’s information into the National Crime Information Center’s computer, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder hidden inside the vehicle.
A short time later, a Metro Nashville Airport Police Department patrol car equipped with a LoJack Police Tracking Computer began receiving the silent signal being emitted by the stolen Land Rover and started tracking the vehicle’s location. A neighboring department’s air and ground units also began tracking the stolen Land Rover. After only a few minutes, the vehicle was located in a long term parking lot at the Nashville International Airport.
Haye’s Land Rover was recovered in just 1 hour and 32 minutes with no damage except a few surface paint scratches. It was later returned to him.
Haye expressed his gratitude, saying “It would have been an awful situation if it was stolen and not recovered. Thanks to LoJack, I am so glad to have it back. Besides some minor scratches to the paint, which I’ve already had fixed, there wasn’t any damage and I’m already driving it again.”
