The owner of a 2017 Toyota Tacoma pickup contacted the Denver Police Department to report his truck stolen after being away from home for over one week. 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 Toyota.

Within minutes Denver police officers picked up the silent LoJack signals from the stolen Tacoma 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 Denver officers tracked the vehicle and recovered it.  The owner was called to the scene and the truck released to him.  It was undamaged.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Tacoma in February 2017 at Centennial Toyota, in Las Vegas, Nevada at the request of the current owner.
