The owner of a 1992 Acura Legend contacted the Las Vegas Metro Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen. 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 Acura.
A short time after the activation, a K9 officer with the LVMPD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Acura 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 K9 officer tracked the Acura and found it unoccupied behind a residence. The residence appeared to be operating an unlicensed auto shop. Viper Detectives arrived on scene, established surveillance and requested a search warrant to recover the stolen Acura. Prior to executing the search warrant, the property owner arrived on scene and advised a subject brought the Acura to the residence. Viper is conducting follow-up investigation on this theft. The Acura was recovered, processed for evidence and will be released to the owner.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Acura Legend in January 1998 at Keyes Acura Sales in Van Nuys, California.
