#3 LoJack Helps Police Arrest Alleged Murder Suspect – A stolen Honda Civic equipped with LoJack led Connecticut police to the apprehension of an alleged murder suspect from Massachusetts, who was wanted in connection with the disappearance of a 36-year-old resident.  The vehicle was recovered, but sadly the resident was later found murdered.

#2 Recovery of LoJack-Equipped Honda Busts International Theft Ring  –Through tracking a Honda CVR equipped with LoJack to a shipping container being driven to a shipyard in Chicago, police pursued an investigation that led to the bust of an expansive international theft ring.   This crime ring spanned from Tennessee to Illinois to New York – and included multiple stolen vehicles – valued at more than $200,000 — all ready to set sail to Africa.

And, the number one recovery story of the year…

#1 LoJack Helps Police Find Kidnapped Child and Apprehend Kidnapper – LoJack helped Illinois police track down a criminal who had kidnapped a four-year-old child and drove off with her in the family van. When police found the van empty, they embarked on a manhunt and found the suspect on a busy street with the little girl.  Thanks to LoJack – which the mother did not even realize was hidden in her van – the child was rescued unharmed, the vehicle was recovered and the suspect was charged with kidnapping and possession of a stolen vehicle.
