The Las Vegas, NV residents in this case had the misfortune of having their Jeep Grand Cherokee stolen twice in seven weeks. Their luck wasn’t all bad, though, because they had the foresight to have the LoJack® system installed when they purchased their vehicle. In this second incident, just like the first, their local police, assisted by LoJack, were able to safely retrieve and return their SUV to them.
On October 1st, 2013, the owners contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report that their Jeep had been taken overnight. After verifying the theft, officers entered the stolen vehicle information into the NCIC Stolen Vehicle System. This procedure automatically activated the hidden LoJack device in the Jeep, which was installed at Don-A-Vee Eagle in Placentia, CA.
A short while later, an officer with the LVMP Bolden Area Command picked up the homing signal from the stolen SUV with the LoJack tracking computer installed in his patrol car. The officer tracked the vehicle into the neighborhood west of the Texas Station Casino, and located it parked and abandoned on Valley Drive. The Cherokee was soon returned to its very relieved owners.
