On October 1, 2012, the owners of a 2009 Honda Civic contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their car was stolen sometime during the late evening hours near the 5200 block of Starter Avenue in Unincorporated Clark County, Nevada.   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 in the area of Nellis Air Force Base picked up the Honda’s silent LoJack signals 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 Civic to the parking lot of 1955 N. Nellis Boulevard, Las Vegas, where it had been hastily abandoned.

The Honda Civic was located 56 minutes after its LoJack System was activated by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.  The vehicle was later released back to the owners.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Civic on September 29, 2008 by Desert Honda of Las Vegas.
