The owners of an Acura MDX contacted the Denver Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. A police officer verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Acura.
A short while later officers with Denver PD, Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado State Patrol and Aurora Police Department were picking up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Acura with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.
Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, an officer with Aurora PD tracked the Acura to the 14200 block of East Alameda Avenue and found the vehicle. A teenage suspect was taken into custody.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Acura MDX in November 2004 at Automotive Avenues in Lakewood, Colorado.
