The owner of a 2004 Nissan Murano contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to report her vehicle was stolen. The owner stated the Nissan was parked in a parking space and found it missing this morning. 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 Nissan.
About 35 minutes after the activation, troopers with the Nevada Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan 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 troopers tracked the Nissan to a commercial yard. The Nissan was recovered and will be released back to its owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Murano in October 2004 at Power Nissan of El Monte in California.
