- LoJack Corporation
(NASDAQ: LOJN), the company that invented the stolen vehicle recovery market 25 years ago, today announced that its LoJack for Motorcycles System helped recover a stolen 2009 Harley Davidson Soft Tail motorcycle for an Army National Guardsman who had just returned from deployment in Afghanistan. The motorcycle was placed in a storage facility on Revere Beach Parkway in November 2010 and was last seen in August of this year.
The Sergeant First Class went to retrieve his Harley on Monday, and found it had been stolen. He reported the theft to the Everett (MA) Police Department, who activated the LoJack for Motorcycles System on the bike. Shortly after activation, officers with the Manchester, NH Police Department Auto Theft Unit began picking up the silent signal from the transponder hidden on the bike. They worked with additional officers with the Manchester Police, including Patrol Sgt. Mucci, and tracked the signal to a garage at a residence in Manchester. At the residence, the Manchester Police Auto Theft Unit executed a search warrant and were able to verify that the Harley was indeed the property of the Sergeant. The bike was recovered intact and the investigation is ongoing.
“Our soldiers help keep this country safe and we owe them a debt of gratitude. We’re especially pleased that we were able to help recover this soldier’s motorcycle,” said Patrick Clancy, Vice President of Law Enforcement, LoJack Corporation.
