The owner of a 2006 Nissan Xterra contacted the North Las Vegas Police Department to report that they were a victim of a robbery. Shortly after the robbery, the offenders returned to take the victim’s Nissan.

The North Las Vegas 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 Nissan.

Approximately 55 minutes after the activation, officers with the North Las Vegas PD, troopers with the Nevada Highway Patrol and officers with the Las Vegas Metro Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Nissan 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 LVMPD officers tracked the Nissan and found it to be occupied. All occupants ran from the stolen Nissan with LVMPD officers in a foot pursuit. Several passengers were taken into custody and arrested for other charges; the driver eluded capture. The stolen Nissan was recovered to be released back to the owner.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Nissan Xterra in November 2006 at United Nissan in Las Vegas, Nevada.
