The owners of an S-Type Jaguar contacted the El Paso County Sheriff’s Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen.
A deputy verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the “Jag.”
A short while later officers with the Colorado Springs Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen sports car 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 officer tracked the Jaguar to the area of 700 South 8th Street where the vehicle was found and recovered. The police located and arrested the suspect who went to jail.
The Jaguar was returned on-scene to the very surprised and happy owners.
The LoJack® System was installed in the S-Type Jaguar in August 2001 by Galpin Jaguar Lincoln Mercury in Van Nuys, California.
