The owners of a used car lot in Englewood contacted the Englewood Police Department and reported that a Honda CR-V was missing and presumed stolen.
A police officer took a theft report and had the vehicle information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine action automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda.
Later an officer with the Commerce City Police Department on routine patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda 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 Honda to a tow yard near 122nd Avenue and Brighton Road in Adams County. An Adams County Sheriff’s Office deputy was called to the scene to investigate. The Honda had been previously towed to this location at the direction of managers at another business in Denver who had found the vehicle abandoned on their property.
The Honda was undamaged.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda CR-V in November 2003 at Maroone Honda of Miami in Florida.
