The owners of a 2008 Chevrolet Colorado contacted the Lincoln Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. They indicated the Chevrolet was taken sometime during the night while parked in front of their residence.

The Lincoln 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 Chevrolet.

Less than an hour later officers with the California Highway Patrol Air Operations flying Air-21, picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.  Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Chevrolet to to a residential area near Perdita and Mary Rose Lane in the City of Lincoln. The officers contacted the City of Lincoln Police Department and directed their patrol units to the location of the parked stolen Chevrolet.

The Lincoln PD completed the recovery report, contacted the owner who responded to the location and took possession of his now recovered Chevrolet and drove it home.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Colorado in April 2008 by Rotolo Chevrolet in Fontana, California.
