On May 29, 2012, the owner of a Ford F150 contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their truck was stolen, with keys in the vehicle, from their residence in Northwest Las Vegas. After verifying the theft, Las Vegas officers entered the Ford’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the pickup.
A short while later, officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Ford F150 on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack Trackers, the officers tracked the truck to the area of N. Decatur and Iron Mountain in Las Vegas. There, the officers located and recovered the abandoned and undamaged vehicle.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Ford F150 in September of 2004 at the Ford Store in San Leandro, CA.
