The owners of a 2007 Ford F-350 contacted the Wheat Ridge 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 pick-up truck.
3-minutes later officers with the Denver Police Department and troopers with the Colorado State Patrol picked 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 officers with the Denver PD tracked the Ford to the 200 block of West 48th Avenue. The Ford was found abandoned by the thieves and was returned on-scene to the very surprised and happy owners.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F-350 in January 2007 at AutoNation Ford in Littleton, Colorado, at the request of the first owner of the truck.
