The owner of a 2002 Audi A4 contacted the Las Vegas Metro Police Department to report the vehicle was stolen. The owner stated he was at an apartment to have a few drinks with a friend. The friend invited another couple over to partake in the festivities. The invited couple left the apartment and the owner went to sleep. When the owner woke up he found his keys and Audi were 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 Audi.
Shortly after an hour of the stolen vehicle entry, officers from the Las Vegas Metro PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Audi with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, officers tracked the Audi to a residential neighborhood. Detectives with the VIPER team set up surveillance on the Audi and subsequently recovered the vehicle.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Audi A4 in July 2002 at McKenna BMW Porsche Audi VW in Norwalk, California.
