On August 6, 2012, the owner of a 2010 Honda CLX contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen sometime during the late afternoon from the parking lot of the Community College of Southern Nevada – West Charleston Campus, near 1200 S. Torrey Pines.  The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department verified the theft and entered the Honda’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle.

Within minutes, officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s “Bolden Area Command” and the Nevada Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal emitting from the stolen Honda on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the stolen Honda to the rear parking lot of a large apartment complex near 1901 N. Jones Boulevard, Las Vegas, where it had been abandoned.

The Honda was located intact over three miles away from where it had been taken; 34 minutes after the LoJack’s system was activated by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.  The vehicle was later released back to the car owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda on October 19, 2009 by Desert Honda of Las Vegas, Nevada.
