The owners of a 2011 Melroe Bobcat S175 contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
to report that their Melroe Bobcat was stolen from a job site.

The LVMPD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Melroe Bobcat.

A short time later, a LoJack equipped vehicle picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Bobcat with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the Bobcat was tracked to the area of Fort Tejon Road and 50th Street East.  The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Palmdale Station deputies responded to the area. The deputies were able to observe the stolen Bobcat in a side yard. The deputies conducted an investigation at the location and made contact with the occupant of the residence.  Deputies received permission to enter the yard and recover the stolen Bobcat.  Follow-up investigation will be conducted by detectives from the LASD-Palmdale Station. The Bobcat was impounded for safe keeping.


The LoJack® System was installed in the Melroe Bobcat in March 2011 at Commercial Sales in Las Vegas, Nevada.
