owners of a Ford F-250 contacted the Wheat Ridge Police Department to report
their vehicle 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 Ford.
For the next four hours numerous law enforcement officers (Denver, Greenwood Village, Englewood, Arapahoe, Lakewood, Littleton, Aurora, JEFFCOM, ADCOM, (Adams & Commerce City) and Thornton) picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Ford with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft.
In almost every case officers located the stolen truck as it was being driven recklessly and in many cases the suspects feloniously eluded. The truck was tracked and located, unoccupied, in the 4700 block of Clay Street by Adams County SO.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F-250 at the original owner’s request in California 14-years ago.
