The owners of a Dodge Charger contacted the Castle Rock Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen.
A police officer verified the theft and had the vehicle information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine action automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Dodge.
A short while later troopers with the Colorado State Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Charger 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 troopers tracked the Charger to the area of a library in Colorado Springs and contacted the vehicle. A suspect was in the vehicle and was arrested without incident and jailed on charges of Aggravated Motor Vehicle Theft.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Dodge Charger in March 2011 at Pueblo Dodge in Colorado.
