The owner of a 2006 Lexus RX330 called the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen from the inside of their garage. A neighbor observed a subject walk up the neighbor’s driveway and crawl under the partially opened garage door. Shortly after entry, the garage door fully opened and the Lexus drove away at a high rate of speed. The concerned neighbor contacted the home owner who was not aware of the auto theft. The LVMPD 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.
Within a short time of the activation, Officers with the LVMPD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Lexus 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 Lexus and found it unoccupied. The Officers recovered the Lexus and released the vehicle to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Lexus RX330 in December 2005 by Lexus Santa Monica in California.
