The owner of a 2004 Volvo S80 contacted the Albuquerque Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen. The owner advised the Volvo was stolen from the parking lot of his apartment complex located in the area of Ladera and Sequoia in the Northwest Area Command. The officer verified the auto theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Volvo.
After a short time of the activation, officers with the Albuquerque Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Volvo with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol and unmarked vehicles. Following the audible and directional cues from the PTC, the Volvo was tracked and located in a residential neighborhood in the area of Central and California in the Southeast Area Command. The officers observed the Volvo parked and unoccupied on the side of the street. The Volvo was processed for evidence and will be returned to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Volvo S80 in May 2007 by Bay Ridge Honda Volvo in Brooklyn, New York.
