The owners of a used car dealership contacted the Colorado Springs Police Department to report that a Dodge truck had been stolen from their lot. They were not aware that a previous owner had LoJack installed to protect the vehicle when they bought the truck new at Colorado Springs Dodge.
The police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Dodge truck.
A short while later officers, investigators and Troopers from both the Colorado Springs PD and the Colorado State Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Dodge with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, officers tracked the Dodge to the area of 2200 block of Bruno Circle. The Dodge truck was recovered undamaged and was returned to the used car dealership.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Dodge Ram in March 2007 at Colorado Springs Dodge.
