On June 11th, 2013, the owners of a business in Adams County, CO, contacted the Adams County Sheriff’s Office to report that a company owned Chrysler 300 had been stolen. The Sheriff’s Deputy verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. This automatically activated the LoJack unit concealed in the Chrysler, which was installed at Colorado Springs Dodge in Colorado Springs, CO.
A short while later, the homing signals emitting from the 300 were picked up by officers with the Westminster Police on the LoJack tracking computers installed in their patrol vehicles. The officers located the vehicle moving in the area of Federal Blvd. and US-36. The license plate had already been changed, a tactic which may fool the naked eye, but not the LoJack system! The suspect sped away but the police were still able to track the Chrysler using LoJack and eventually found the car parked and abandoned. The 300 was soon returned to its very relieved owners.
