owners of a Nissan Frontier pickup truck contacted the Longmont PD 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 automatically activated
the LoJack® System concealed in the truck.
Later a Broomfield officer on routine patrol picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Nissan with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from their PTCs, the Broomfield officers tracked the vehicle to US 287 and Midway where the pickup was found unoccupied. It was returned to the happy owners.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Frontier in November of 2005 in Arizona at the request of a previous owner of the truck.
