Honda Hidden in a Shipping Container – New Jersey 

On January 28, 2022, LoJack was made aware of a stolen 2020 Honda CRV, worth approximately $25,000. LoJack’s Call Center tracked the live location of the vehicle and notified the Pasco County Sherriff’s office with updates. The last known location of the vehicle was at the Port of Newark, New Jersey. 

Pasco County then notified the Port Authority Police of New York and New Jersey (PAPD) for assistance in recovering the vehicle. A detective from PAPD called the area’s LoJack Law Enforcement Liaison for real-time location data and reached out to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for assistance. The CBP agent coordinated with LoJack’s Law Enforcement Liaison and was given satellite imagery of the last known location of the stolen vehicle at the Port of Newark. With the information provided by LoJack, the CBP agent was able to narrow down the suspected shipping container and locate the vehicle within. The vehicle was then successfully turned over to PAPD to complete the recovery.

Stolen Vehicle Driven & Ditched – New Mexico  

Recently, a 2015 Kia Forte was stolen in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The owner called the local police to report their vehicle as stolen. Fortunately, the LoJack app allowed the owner to coordinate with police to locate their stolen vehicle, worth approximately $15,000. The owner tracked the vehicle from their phone and provided real-time location updates to the police. They advised the officers that the vehicle was in Bernalillo – about a 30-minute drive south of Santa Fe. This information was then relayed to the New Mexico State Police. An officer with NMSP heard the call update from the owner and went into the Bernalillo area. He then called the LoJack Call Center to confirm the vehicle’s location and soon discovered the stolen vehicle abandoned with the door left open.
