owners of a Toyota RAV4 contacted the Pueblo Sheriff’s Office to report their
vehicle stolen. A deputy sheriff
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 Toyota, causing
it to send out a silent homing signal to law enforcement.
A short while later officers with the Pueblo Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen RAV4 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 officers tracked the signals to the 1900 block of Vinewood. The stolen vehicle was located and two arrests made. The case was turned over to the Pueblo Sheriff’s Office.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota RAV4 in October 2010 at Pueblo Toyota, Pueblo, Colorado at the owner’s request.
