On October 30, 2012, the owners of a 2007 Cadillac Escalade contacted the Aurora Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen.
Aurora officers verified the theft and entered the Cadillac’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the SUV. LoJack is the only theft recovery system that is directly operated by law enforcement and this interface is seamless and instantaneous.
Immediately, officers with the Denver Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Cadillac 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 area of 2700 block of Elizabeth. The Cadillac, valued at $35,950, was unoccupied and recovered, apparently undamaged. It was held for return to the very grateful owners.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Cadillac in March of 2007 at Don Massey Cadillac in Lone Tree, Colorado.
