The owners of a 2006 Ford F250 contacted the Wheat Ridge Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from their residence.
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 Ford truck.
Twenty-minutes later a police agent with the Lakewood Police Department was picking up the silent LoJack signal coming from the stolen Ford. This was soon followed by the Denver Police Department officers with their PTCs. The stolen truck was quickly located at a residence in the 4300 block of West Florida Avenue in Denver.
This investigation is still in progress.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F250 in October 2009 at Spradley Chevrolet in Pueblo, Colorado, for these same owners.
