Lojack Corporation Press Release:
Lojack today revealed its top stolen motorcycle recovery stories of 2012. From tracking down a Harley wrapped in aluminum foil, to finding stolen bikes hidden inside vans, these stories demonstrate how the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System continues to be an effective system for protecting bikes from the clever – and not so clever – tactics of today’s bike thieves.
Top Motorcycle Recoveries of 2012:
#1: Thieves Fail to “Foil” LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System
This story shows how difficult it is to foil the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System. The owner of a Harley awoke one morning to find that his bike had been stolen from his apartment complex. Within minutes after the system was activated, the silent Security system signal led police to a garage attached to a nearby residence. When officers searched the garage, they found the bike with major components wrapped in aluminum foil. This was the thieves’ misguided attempt to render LoJack’s tracking capabilities ineffective. What they didn’t realize is that the system’s radio frequency technology can track vehicles even if they are hidden in shipping containers or concrete garages. Two suspects were arrested, and the bike was returned to its owner.
#2: BMW Motorcycle Found Inside Stolen Van Within Minutes of System Activation
The theme of this recovery story is that thieves may be able to run, but they can’t hide from the LoJack System. After the owner of a BMW S1000RR received a theft alert from his bike’s security system early warning System, he reported the theft to police who, within minutes, began receiving the tracking signal. They found the bike concealed inside a Dodge Caravan that had been stolen earlier in the year from Fairfax, Virginia.
