The owner of a 2014 Honda Accord contacted the Northglenn Police Department to report that her vehicle had been stolen during the night from her apartment complex parking lot. 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 Honda.
A short while later deputies with the Adams County Sheriff’s Department picked up the silent LoJack signal coming 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 PTCs, these deputies tracked the Honda to a mobile home park near 63rd Avenue and Decatur Street. There they found the Honda parked and unoccupied in front of a residence.
Upon contacting the residence they were told by various persons present, all of whom are currently on parole for one thing or another, that they didn’t know anything about the Honda. The Honda was processed for evidence and later returned to the happy owner.
This is the second time this Honda has been stolen, the first time being exactly one year ago. In both instances the Honda was quickly tracked and recovered by law enforcement before it could be used in another crime, damaged or dismantled.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Accord in March 2014 at the request of this owner at AutoNation Honda 104th in Westminster, Colorado.
