On December 15, 2012, the owners of a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck contacted the Pueblo Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen.

Pueblo 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 pickup.  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 with the Pueblo Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC’s) 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 Highway 50 and Hudson, where it was safely recovered and returned to the owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Chevrolet in February of 2010 at Spradley Chevrolet in Pueblo, Colorado. The vehicle was valued at approximately $26,000.
