The owners of a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado pickup contacted the Glendale Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. The owners advised that the Chevrolet was parked on a side street while attending a swap meet. When they returned several hours later the Chevrolet was missing.
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 Chevrolet.
Officers from the Denver Colorado Police Department later 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 a side street in the 1300 block of W. Kentucky Avenue in Denver.
The Chevrolet was found unoccupied and locked. There was minor damage to the right side of the Chevrolet but otherwise drivable. The Chevy pickup was towed and impounded for safekeeping.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Silverado in January 2007 by Bill Heard Chevrolet in Scottsdale, Arizona.
