LoJack Reveals 2008 Top Recoveries Of Stolen Motorcycles

Chop shops and organized crime continue to fuel theft; thieves use Internet as venue for selling stolen bikes and parts.

Westwood, MA -December 18, 2008- LoJack Corporation (NASDAQ: LOJN) today unveiled its annual wrap-up of the top recoveries for 2008 involving the LoJack For Motorcycles and LoJack Early Warning For Motorcycles recovery systems. These stories underscore that chop shops and organized crime continue to fuel the growing problem of motorcycle theft. The recovery stories of 2008 also revealed that today's thieves continue to profit from this lucrative crime and are doing so in part by leveraging the Internet to sell stolen bikes and bike parts.

"This year's top recovery stories continue to show that professional thieves and organized crime are behind most motorcycle theft, which means that bike owners need to take extra precautions to ensure they're protected from these sophisticated criminals," said Patrick Clancy, Vice President of Law Enforcement, LoJack Corporation. "Owners should park in a well lit area and in view of a security camera if possible; avoid parking between large vehicles because it provides 'cover' for thieves; and lock the bike to a secure, immovable object or to another bike. Lastly, use theft deterrents such as alarms or kill switches to deter amateur thieves and to ensure it's protected from the professionals, equip bikes with a recovery system so it can be recovered if stolen."

Below are LoJack's top motorcycle recoveries for 2008:
