On December 12, 2012, the owners of a 2002 Toyota Camry contacted the Denver Police Department to report the vehicle stolen.
Denver Police verified the theft and had the Toyota’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.
A short while later, officers with the Denver Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Toyota 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 1300 block of Zenobia Street. The Toyota, valued at $7.950, was quickly recovered.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Toyota Camry in March 2005 through a sale made by Automotive Search, Inc. in Denver, Colorado. This is the second time that this vehicle has been stolen and quickly recovered by police using LoJack.
