During the late evening hours the owners of a 2007 Lexus L46 had discovered they were the victims of a fraudulent sale. They contacted the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department 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 Lexus.
Early the following morning an officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s “Canine Section” had just started his shift, and began picking up the silent LoJack signal from the Lexus with his LoJack Police Tracking Computer installed in his patrol car.
The officer tracked the Lexus to the parking garage of a hotel and casino just west of the Las Vegas Strip. Auto Theft Detectives arrived to assist and set up surveillance on the Lexus. A short while later, the suspect returned to the Lexus and was quickly taken into custody. The Lexus was still intact was impounded for safe keeping for San Bernardino authorities.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Lexus in April 2007 by Lexus of Thousand Oaks CA.
