On April 20, 2012, the owners of a 2007 Scion TC 3-door hatchback contacted the Thornton Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. After verifying the theft, Thornton officers had the Scion’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.
A short while later, officers with the Denver Police Department picked up the Scion’s silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen vehicle with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) installed in their patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack PTCs, the officers tracked the Scion to the area of 43rd Avenue and Sherman Streets. There, the officers located the abandoned vehicle, safely recovered it, and returned the vehicle to the grateful owners.
The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Scion in February of 2010 at Automotive Avenues in Lakewood, CO.
