The owners of a Jeep Grand Cherokee contacted the Boulder 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 on the part of law enforcement automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Jeep.
Later, a Loveland Police Department officer on routine patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal coming from the stolen Jeep with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles.
Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC the officer tracked the Jeep to the 2500 block of West 44th Avenue in Loveland where the vehicle was found unoccupied. The Jeep was towed for return to the surprised and happy owners.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Jeep Grand Cherokee in January 2000 via Direct Sales in Arizona at the request of a previous owner of the vehicle.
