The business owners of a construction equipment company contacted the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office to report that one of their vehicles had been stolen from Pueblo West.
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 F-150.
Minutes later officers from at least three law enforcement jurisdictions; Pueblo Police Department, Colorado State Patrol and Pueblo Sheriff’s Office, began picking up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford 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 Ford to the East side of Pueblo near US-50 and Troy Avenue where the truck was located. The two suspects in the stolen truck fled from the officers. The truck was found where it had run off the road. The suspects had fled on foot from the vehicle.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F-150 in November 2008 by Spradley Barickman Ford in Pueblo, Colorado.
