On June 24, 2012, the owners of a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500, valued at $19,000, contacted the Denver Police Department and reported that their truck was stolen. Denver 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 Dodge truck.
A short time later, officers with the Denver Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Dodge with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTCs, the officers tracked the Dodge Ram to the 2700 block of West Archer Place. The truck was unoccupied and was returned to the very happy owners.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Dodge Ram pickup truck in November 2010 at Pueblo Dodge.
