The owner of a 2006 Toyota Sienna contacted the Las Vegas Metro Police Department to report the vehicle as stolen from the doctor’s office she works at. A patient was left alone in a room and took the victim’s car keys from the counter. The patient, turned suspect, then leaves the doctor’s office the car keys and the Toyota.
The Las Vegas Metro PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Toyota.
Within a short time of the stolen vehicle entry, officers from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Toyota with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Toyota to an apartment complex just a few miles away from the original theft location. The Toyota was located unoccupied and was returned to the owner. The suspect was identified and will be arrested for this incident.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Toyota Sienna in December 2006 by Texas Toyota in Grapevine, Texas.
