The owner of a 2012 Ford F150 contacted the Las Vegas Metro Police Department to report that 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 Ford.

Within 7 minutes after the entry, officers from the Henderson Police Department and the Las Vegas Metro PD and troopers with the Nevada Highway Patrol picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Ford 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 Ford. The Ford was found to be unoccupied and subsequently towed from the scene for safekeeping.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Ford F150 in October 2012 at Team Ford Lincoln in Las Vegas, Nevada.
