owners of a Subaru Impreza contacted the Thornton Police Department 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 Subaru.
A short time later officers with the Denver Police Department Air-One helicopter and patrol officer with the Aurora Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Subaru with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from their PTCs, these officers quickly tracked the vehicle to the area of 600 North Pearl Street. A traffic stop was made and two suspects arrested for Aggravated Motor Vehicle Theft.
The Subaru was recovered and returned to the very happy owners who were unaware that the previous owner of their car in Snohomish Washington had purchased LoJack to protect it in the event it was ever stolen.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Subaru in June of 2006 in Renton, Washington.
