The owners of a 2008 Buell Thor contacted the Westminster Police Department to report that their motorcycle had been stolen from their home during the night on the Memorial Day weekend. 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 Buell.
A short while later a deputy with the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, assisted by a trooper with the Colorado State Patrol, picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen motorcycle 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 officers tracked the motorcycle to a commercial storage facility near 73rd and I-25.
The exact storage unit in which the silent signal was coming from was quickly pin-pointed by the LoJack PTCs.
The investigation resulted in the locked storage unit being opened with permission from a responsible party and the disclosure of the stolen Buell inside.
The motorcycle was recovered intact and a suspect in this case has been identified. The investigation is continuing by personnel from the three law enforcement jurisdictions.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Buell Thor in April 2008 at Daytona Harley Davidson in Ormand Beach, Florida.
