The owner of a 2000 Buick LeSabre contacted the Las Vegas Metro Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen two separate times within a 24 hour period. 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 Buick both times.

Within a short time after the stolen vehicle entry, officers and Air-2 with the Las Vegas Metro PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Buick 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 Buick and found it to be unoccupied both times. The Buick was recovered twice and released to the owner each time.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Buick LeSabre in November 1999 at Thorson GMC Buick in Pasadena, California.
