On July 27, 2012, the owner of a 2008 Yamaha motorcycle contacted the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office to report the bike stolen from his home. A deputy from Jefferson County verified the theft and had the vehicle’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the motorcycle.
A short while later, officers with the Littleton Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Yamaha with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. The LoJack PTC provides officers with on-board information which permits them to locate the stolen vehicle quickly and with an increased margin of safety.
Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack PTCs, the officers tracked the vehicle to the rear of an apartment building on South Prince Street. There, they recovered the motorcycle with only minor damage. It was returned to the very grateful owner.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Yamaha in July 2011 the request of the owner at Grand Prix Motor Sports in Littleton, Colorado.
