The owners of a 2006 Nissan Sentra contacted the Arvada Police Department to report their vehicle 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 Nissan.

Within the hour officers with the Arvada Police Department were picking 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 PTC’s officers and detectives located the stolen Sentra which was unoccupied.  They set up a surveillance of it to see if the suspects would return to the vehicle.  After a period of time the car was recovered and returned to the very happy owners.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Sentra in August 2008 at Medved Chevrolet in Wheat Ridge, Colorado.
