The owners of a 2007 Chevrolet Impala contacted the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office 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 Chevrolet.
Just minutes after the entry and activation, a corporal with the Colorado State Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Impala 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 corporal tracked the Chevrolet to a parking lot in the 4200 block of Charleston in Colorado Springs, several miles away from where it had been stolen.
The Chevrolet was found to be undamaged. The owner was brought to the scene and was very grateful for the quick recovery. How the Chevrolet was stolen is not known as the owner had possession of the only keys and there was no damage to the locks or ignition.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Impala in 2008 at Spradley Ford Lincoln in Pueblo, Colorado.
