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 Toyota.
Less than 40-minutes later officers with the Denver PD picked up the silent LoJack signal coming from the stolen Toyota 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 officers quickly tracked the Toyota to the area of 45th and Quebec where it was found unoccupied. The Toyota was later returned to the surprised and grateful owners who were unaware that their vehicle had previously been installed with LoJack.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Corolla in January 2007 at Automotive Avenues in Lakewood, Colorado, at the request of a prior owner of the vehicle.
