On October 12, 2012, the owners of a 2006 Ford F-250 contacted the Commerce City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen.

The police verified the theft and entered the Ford’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the pickup truck.  LoJack is the only theft recovery system that is directly operated by law enforcement and this interface is seamless and instantaneous.

A short while later, officers from the Thornton Police Department, Adams County Sheriff’s Office and the East Metro Auto Theft Task Force picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Ford 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 located the vehicle on North Dallas Street in Thornton.  The truck was recovered in good condition and the investigation is continuing by detectives. The truck is valued at approximately $22,425.

The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Ford truck in August of 2006 at O’Meara Ford.
