On December 27, 2012, the owners of an Acura Integra contacted the Lakewood Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home. 

Lakewood Police verified the theft and entered the Acura’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.

Minutes later, officers with the Denver Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Integra 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 Denver officers tracked the vehicle to the area near 1200 South Umatilla Street. There, they located the vehicle: the ignition lock was broken, but the vehicle was otherwise undamaged.

This is the third time this vehicle has been stolen; the owners installed LoJack to protect the vehicle after the first theft, and have been very pleased with the quick recovery of the vehicle in the subsequent thefts.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Acura Integra in January of 2008 at the owners request at Rickenbaugh Cadillac/Volvo in Denver, Colorado. The approximate value of the recovered vehicle is $5,275.
