On November 7, 2012, the owners of a 2008 Dodge Avenger contacted the Pueblo Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen.
The police verified the theft and entered the Dodge’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle. 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, deputies from the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office, as well as officers from the Pueblo Police Department and troopers from the Colorado State Patrol, picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Avenger 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 deputies and officers from the Pueblo Sheriff’s Office and Pueblo Police Department quickly tracked the Avenger to the area of Northern Avenue and East Routt. There, they safely recovered the vehicle and held it for safekeeping until it could be returned to the owner. The approximate value of the vehicle is $11,800.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Dodge Avenger in April of 2010 at Pueblo Dodge in Pueblo, Colorado.
