On June 24, 2012, an employee of a construction company contacted the Westminster Police Department to report that a company pickup truck had been stolen from the street in front of his home.  Westminster 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 Ford truck. 

A short while later, officers with the Westminster Police Department (as well as Denver, Arvada and the Colorado State Patrol) picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen F-250 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 Westminster officers tracked the pickup truck to the 8900 block of McCoy Place where they safely recovered the vehicle.

The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Ford truck in October 2008 at Medved Autoplex. The Ford truck is valued at $28,000.
