On October 6, 2012, the owners of a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck contacted the Brighton Police Department to report their vehicle stolen.

The police verified the theft and entered the Silverado’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

A short while later, deputies from the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office and officers with the Denver Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) installed in their patrol vehicles.  The LoJack PTC provides officers with on-board information which enables 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 deputies tracked the vehicle to the 2500 block of South Dayton Way, where they recovered the unoccupied, undamaged truck. The estimated value of this recovery is $13,000.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Chevrolet Silverado in February of 2006 at Watson Chevrolet in Tucson, Arizona.
