The owners of a Toyota 4Runner contacted the Colorado Springs Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen from their residence. Colorado Springs Officers responded to the scene and after verifying the theft entered the vehicle information into state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Toyota.
A short while later officer with the Colorado Springs PD picked up the silent LoJack signals 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 their PTCs, the officer’s tracked the stolen 4Runner to a motel parking lot in the 7200 block of Commerce Center. No one was in the vehicle but the follow up investigation at the time of the recovery was focusing on video surveillance cameras and area hotel registration information.
The owners got their Toyota back quickly and undamaged.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota 4Runner in May 2005 at Queensboro Toyota in Woodside, New York by the request of the prior owner of the vehicle..
