The owners of a Chevrolet Cobalt contacted the Pueblo Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen.
A police officer verified the victim’s report of theft and had the vehicle information entered into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Chevrolet.
Short while later Pueblo PD officers picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Cobalt with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC the officer tracked the signal coming from the stolen Chevrolet into an alley in the 1100 block of West Mesa Street. There at the rear of a residence officers spotted two persons in the Cobalt. The female driver bolted but was apprehended before she could enter the home. The male passenger was also arrested.
Both arrestees were found to be in possession of a substantial amount of Methamphetamine as well as a large amount of cash and narcotics paraphernalia. The female was also found to be wanted on two arrest warrants. This investigation was turned over to detectives and both arrestees were jailed.
This is the second time in just over 5-weeks that this Chevrolet Cobalt was stolen. Each time the concealed LoJack unit was activated by the police entry as stolen and helped officers make a quick recovery.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Cobalt in March 2010 at Spradley Chevrolet in Pueblo, Colorado.
