The owners of the 2013 Ford Escape discovered their vehicle stolen from out front of their house sometime during the overnight hours. The owners reportedly last saw the vehicle parked around 7:00 P.M. in the residential neighborhood near N. Jones Boulevard and W. Ann Road. They immediately contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police who verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Ford Escape.
A short while later, detectives’ with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police “Auto Theft Detail” picked up the silent signals from the LoJack® System installed on stolen Escape with their LoJack® Police Tracking Computers installed in their unmarked vehicles. The detectives quickly tracked the stolen vehicle to an apartment complex parking lot 7300 block of Pirates Cove Road, over 10 miles away from where it had been taken less than 20 minutes after picking up the silent signal. The vehicle, reportedly intact, was returned to the owners’ at the scene.
The LoJack® System was installed on the Ford Escape on 3/25/2014 at Team Ford of Las Vegas, NV.
