On March 17, 2012, the owner of a 1965 Ford Mustang Classic went for a cruise on a Saturday, came home and parked his Classic Mustang in front of his home. On Sunday afternoon, March 18, 2012, he discovered that someone had stolen his car.
The owner immediately reported the theft of his Mustang to Los Angeles Police Department-Northeast Division. In less than 50 minutes after entry into the California stolen system/National Crime Investigation Bureau system, officers from the LAPD Wilshire Division had picked up the silent LoJack signal, tracked and located the vehicle.
The only damage noted, according to the victim was a “punched ignition”. The vehicle was retrieved by the victim, who commented that he was “sure glad he purchased LoJack” when he first obtained the Mustang in 1999, and was thrilled that it still worked after 13 years since it was installed.
