The owner of a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe contacted the Las Vegas Metro Police Department to report the vehicle was stolen. The owner advised that their Tahoe was parked in a hotel parking structure on the famous Las Vegas strip. When the owner went to where they parked the Tahoe they found their vehicle was missing.
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 Chevrolet.
Just twelve minutes after the stolen vehicle entry, troopers from the Nevada Highway Patrol and officers from the LVMPD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet 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 and located the unoccupied Chevrolet. The Chevrolet was recovered and returned back to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Tahoe in December 2004 at Power Chevrolet in Irvine, California.
