The company manager of a 2011 Ford F-250 contacted the Glendale PD to report that a vehicle rented by them to a customer had been stolen from the customer. Prior to making the theft report the area where the truck had last been parked had been checked by an agent of the company and it could not be found.
Glendale PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Ford truck.
Thirty-six minutes later an officer with the Denver Police Department on routine patrol in a patrol car equipped with a LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) picked up the silent homing beacons coming from the stolen truck. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officer quickly tracked and located the truck parked in an alley behind an apartment building near I-25 and University. The vehicle was undamaged as far as could be determined and was towed for safe keeping to be returned to the owners.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F-250 in September 2011.
