On June 23, 2012, the owner of an Audi A4 contacted the Aurora Police Department to report that her vehicle was stolen from her home. Aurora officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Audi. 

A short while later, officers from several agencies (Denver, Jefferson County, Aurora and Arapahoe County) picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen vehicle with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack PTCs, the deputies from the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office and officers from the Aurora Police Department tracked the Audi to a motel on East Iliff Avenue, where they recovered the vehicle and contacted a suspect.

The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Audi in February 2003 in Maryland. The vehicle is valued at $8,900.
