On a recent Friday, the owners of a 2012 Honda Accord in Wheat Ridge, CO locked their keys in their car. When they returned with a spare key, the vehicle was gone- but not for long. Local law enforcement, assisted by the LoJack® system the owners had installed when they bought their car, recovered it in just minutes after activation.
On June 20th, 2014, the Honda’s owners contacted the Wheat Ridge Police to report the theft of their vehicle. Officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. This procedure automatically activated the LoJack unit concealed in the Accord, which was installed at AutoNation Honda 104th in Westminster, CO.
A few minutes later, police officers from Arvada, Denver, Wheat Ridge and Lakewood were picking up the silent homing signals from the stolen Accord with the LoJack tracking computers installed in their patrol vehicles. The officers located the Honda near West 12th Place and Newland Street, where they found it parked and abandoned. The Accord was retrieved by the Lakewood PD and swiftly returned to its rightful owners.
